transmission-gtk
"Good: It's very simple, easy to get started with and user friendly with superfluous advanced functions hidden away to avoid overcrowding its UI. Bad: It appears to have difficulty in consistently establishing connection to other torrent clients, especially if it's been running for a long time it has great trouble finding peers to connect to, thus I cannot recommend it for server usage. It is however fine for typical usage. Alternatives: Deluge."

sysinfo
"It's a simple app that gives you basic system and hardware information, like what CPU you have, what RAM, what storage device etc. Unfortunately, it crashes when you clik the "System" tab at the top of the window. It hasn't received any meaningful updates since 2012. You can get most of the info it provides from the following terminal commands: lscpu , lshw , lspci , lsusb , hwinfo and so on."

smbnetfs
"smbnetfs provides the ability to browse network folders/workgroups and mount network servers, that is, any shared (SAMBA) network resource."
5
gvfs-backends
"gvfs-backends is required for the network:// folder to work. Without this, you cannot browse your local network groups and servers!"
5
samba
"This is the core package for SAMBA network file and printer sharing and is required for other PCs/SMB clients on your local network to see your machine. The sharing plugins for Caja, Nemo, Nautilus etc. won't work if samba is not installed. If youre using a firewall on your PC, open ports 139 and 445 to allow others to connect to your server."
5
samba-libs
"samba-libs is a dependency of the package gvfs-backends which allows browsing network folders and servers, for example SAMBA file shares."

cifs-utils
"cifs-utils is necessary to mount some SMB server shares, such as those requiring authentication."

qpdfview
"A good document viewer that allows multiple open documents in tabs. Its stateful (conserves info about open tabs and windows, and documents) from session to session. It sllows various kinds of overview of your documents, in bookmarks, thumbnails, page outlines and property viewer directly in the UI instad of having to go to the FIle menu like all other apps. It supports annotations. It's reasonably light on resources - uning only a few megabytes of disk space, but open documents easily consume over a hundred MB when opened. Nice to have!"

xreader
"A fair PDF (etc) document viewer that's very light on resources. It's very simple, does the bare necessities but not more than that. Doesn't support highlighting or any kind of annotations."

tracker-miner-fs
"Tracker is a bundle of apps that catalogue file contents to allow quick search of all sorts of text content, exif data from photos,tage in music and many other types of metadata. It can be very useful in making metadata easily available for certain apps and tasks. The downside is that it can slow your system down, especially if you have a hard disk as the boot unit since it is drive heavy when indexing. The indexing phase may take several hours depending on how much data you wish to index, beyond that the performance inpact is not noticaeable and the worst bugs seems to have been iron out many years ago. The remaining consideration is that the catalogue can become large, easily surprassing 10 gigabytes if you have several hundreg gigabytes of mixed files."

gadmin-samba
"This is a very comprehensive tool for configuring your local SAMBA server/services setup, allowing you to fine tune many details of this system for file and printer sharing. However, it is several years old and its default setup will overwrite your existing SMB.conf, possibly causing your system to be unreachacle if you choose to apply it immediately. This should only be used by systems administrators or if you need to dig into the SMBd config without editing it by hand. Otherwise, try out "nemo-share" or "caja-share" to share your folders over the network."

lybniz
"This is a simple and nice maths graphing app that at this moment allows you to have up to three mathematical functions plotted on a canvas at any one time. It allows power functions, geometric functions, exponential function and combinations of these. You can dimension the canvas freely. it's handy for learning/teaching algebra together with visualising simple functions."

xfonts-terminus
"This font seems quite comfortable to read terminal text from. Good work."

pidgin-otr
"Still works, still good for its purpose. Layout in the plugin interface could use a brushup."
5
abiword
"Decided to give it a try after not using it for a while. Yes, it is lean on resources, compared to Libreoffice. Typed up a document, proceeded to save to avoid losing data: Program crahed on the spot. Uninstalling."

thunderbird
"The best email client. Also contains facilities for IRC chat and IM messaging. The best feature however is its integration with web calenders via Lightning."
5
redeclipse
"Great game, but marred with problem on Mint - unplayably low framerate, and very buggy procedyre for changing screen resolution."

mangler
"Simple, good, and ironically, far better than "the real thing"."
