    Hello and welcome to the forums!

    My own favorites would be Pacman, the default package tool for Arch Linux, and vi, the command line text editor.

    I refuse to let fear and fear of others rule my life. It puts my humanity at risk.

    I would have to second mutt and links2 and add apt to the list

    And ssh and scp and rsync and vim and nano and...

    Well, since people are falling over themselves with vim, I guess I have to rescue the poor sod from hell

    emacs-nox (invoke ia emacs -nw) is all you'll ever need.

    Let the barbecue begin!

    Well, sort of. I really prefer ne (the nice editor), as ne has some awesome unicode support. One of my big hobbies is in linguistics. As such, I like my editors to be able to handle a wide array of characters (chinese, hangul, tibetan, hindi, etc...). Vi and the like just don't cut it. All the same, I do not want to be running another OS either, so emacs is out.

    ncmpc++
    elinks
    aria2 (I used to play around with rtorrent and the cli transmission, but this handles everything I need in a cli torrent client as well as regular downloading.)
    screen
    mp3blaster
    feh
    fbida
    cdrecord
    zsh
    ncdu
    bauerbill
    pbget
    vifm
    sshmnt

    I could probably go on, but those I use on a regular to semi-regular basis.
