Software reviews
Software Score
firefox
"A must have as a webdeveloper since the majority of the web uses Firefox nowadays."
5
eclipse
"Combined with ZenCode, Aptana Studio and PDT it is a complete dream for a webdeveloper for the total cost of _nothing_!"
5
gnome-do
"Can't more than agree with @jajodo ! Default keybinding is WinKey+Space, type the name of the program you want to start and then press enter. Can't get any faster/simpler."
5
warzone2100
"Worked perfect as a time killer when I didn't have internet access on a total of 6 hours train trip across the country."
4
warsow
"Fast free FPS game with advance combat moves. Only downside is that you can't start multiplayergames with your friends without having a server running or picking a public one."
4
brasero
"Clean interface, easy to add files, burning cd/dvd images and more."
5
screen
"As distrohopper said. But in addition to that, I'd like to add the possibility to run programs in the background on a server which you have shell access on. Maybe working on compiling something, chatting over irssi, compressing some file to your webhotel with ssh access too and much much more."
5
irssi
"Ultrafast, scripts, themes and simply awesome irc-client for people that enjoy the terminal. Can be hidden in a 'screen' on a shell to keep it open."
5
mc
"Use it over shell to a linux server and sometimes on my desktop to manage files. But I still miss good old Total Commander from time as a Windows User. Sure, there's gnome-commander and such, but they are far behind in functionallity."
4
skype
"It works like a charm for calling friends or having a open call with small friend-parties when gaming. But the gap between the Windows version and the Linux version is way too big."
3
wine1.2
"I use it to play World of Warcraft. Works great. Only downside is the poor support for Direct3D. But I rather blame the game developers for not making the graphics in OpenGL."
5
cheese
"Take a picture, record a video, works like a charm."
5
gimp
"I don't do much graphics, but when I'm going to edit any photo to remove red eyes, do some minor logo or something Gimp is wonderful. It can even be used for more powerful graphics, but that's out of my league."
5
geany
"I've been testing Aptana Studio, which is based of Eclipse. But I always lean back to Geany since it's fast, lightweight and have 90% of the features I need!"
5
conky
"Truly awesome customization posibilitys. And if anyone know where to find the conky file for the one in the screenie, send me a pm. :-P"
5
vlc
"Best videoplayer ever for any operating system. I'll quote my friend "If the movie doesn't play in VLC, the movie is damaged.""
5
amsn
"The best MSN software to use if you ask me. It doesn't give the spam messages Pidgin gives."
5
virtualbox-3.1
"I was kind of annoyed that it only supported 800x600 resolution. But after som asking around and some googling I now can use 1360x768. Totally acceptable."
5
filezilla
"Main software for me to handle all FTP-related filetransfers. I was used to Total Commander in Windows, but since none of the Commander clones was even close to Total Commander I had to grab a stand-alone ftp-client, and FileZilla was the best one I could find."
5
openoffice.org
"A complete office suite for a price that only includes the download time and the time to install it. Had "Convert to PDF" in OpenOffice Write ages before commercial Microsoft Office Word had it. Ehough said."
5
recordmydesktop
"The best screencast software out there. One click and it saves sound and video, converts to a rather small .ogg-file with no quality loss. Get 'gtk-recordmydesktop' too for sysdock-icon with options!"
5
chromium
"Lightweight, Fast and Modern. Sync bookmarks with my Gmail account (Google Docs) on all computers I use it on. I have replaced Firefox a long time ago with it."
5
deluge
"Clean interface, easy step from uTorrent, plugins and awesome webui."
