"Middle click for hand tool dude. Control + mousewheel zooms too."

kicad
"A great place to start learning EDA software. Open source, so no restrictions like Eagle. Best for simpler designs using through hole or single sided boards. 3D preview and hundreds of footprints and models in the community. Less flexible than gEDA, but easier to learn."

stellarium
"Excellent and simple to use sky simulator. Great for those who take freqent outdoor breaks and find themselves wondering, "What's that?""

xplanet
"It takes some doing, but this program can be used to make beautiful renderings of just about any body in the solar system. I use a script to render earth as a projection superimposed with recent cloud cover data and a day/night filter to make an interesting desktop background."

oregano
"Great for quick and dirty simulations and schematic layout. Lacks both the polish and the complication of larger programs. I find myself reaching for it more and more often when I just want to check something simple."

gpodder
"Simple, easily configured podcast aggregator. Definitely fits into the 'just works' category."

alarm-clock
"Great all purpose simple alarm clock. It's got enough options to cover anything I'd need, and a template system for shorter countdowns like laundry and ebay auctions. Plenty of different notification options are available."

geany
"This is a great place for a beginning programmer to start. It's got all the basics and lacks the large learning curve of bigger IDEs."

geda
"Open source EDA suite with no limitations. Flexible, sophisticated, scriptable, and a high learning curve. Better than Kicad for multilayer and SMT design (IMHO). Not for those shy of the command line or unfamiliar with linux file structure. You'll be getting your hands dirty setting things up."

radiotray
"Refreshingly simple. If you're a Groove Salad freak you may need to update the URL, the one that's included is a bit old and won't easily connect."
5
okular
"Seems to be an excellent replacement for Adobe's reader. Uses KDE libraries, so not very lightweight for gnome users. Was difficult to find in Software Manager but worth it."
