    Favorite Apps


    I didn't see another thread like this so I thought I'd post one. This is a place to share your favorite apps and find some new ones based on what other people like.

    My favorite apps:
    Firefox (browser)
    Azureus (BitTorrent Client)
    Inkscape (2D vector program)
    Scribus (Desktop publishing)
    VLC (Video Player)
    amaroK (Audio Player)
    The Battle for Wesnoth (2D RTS)
    K3B (Burning suite)
    Thunderbird (Mail Client)
    Gaim (IM client)
    Nvu (WYSIWYG Web IDE)
    Superkaramba (Desktop widgets)
    The GIMP (Image Manipulation Program)
    Blender (3D Animation)
    OpenOffice (Office Suite)


    And hopefully with your help I'll find some more that I like.

    I'll skip the very popular ones (read: firefox), here's a few that immediately get installed on my computers:

    1. Sylpheed Claws. A GTK-based, fast, light, and very configurable email client.

    2. MC. Midnight commander. IMHO one of the best command-line apps (file manager).

    3. Nano. Quick & easy command-line editor.

    Since the title of the thread is 'Favourite Apps', I'll also mention Gentoo's package maintainance sistem (app), portage

    I couldn't find any SVG program named Flexi on the web. But I use Inkscape, the simplicity of it is amazing. You can whip up icons or avatar in 2 minutes.

    I've tried Incscape, Scribus, and Open Office Draw. Flexi is short for FlexiSign Pro. A program made by Scanvec Amiable. I used it at work when I did signs, automotive graphics, large images, digital vehicle wraps, etc.

    How does Gnumeric compare to OO.org's Calc program? I'm guessing it's faster, but how about it's reading and writing of the Excel format? Abiword, for instance, is very light and quick, but it doesn't do as good a job as OO.org's Word with .doc files (IMO).
