Software reviews
Software Score
xchat
"Few bugs, it's now unmaintained, but great IRC client."
4
chromium-browser
"Used to have a bug but now it works OK. Faster than Firefox 3, but not faster than Firefox 4/5."
4
gwibber
"Great software for faster tweeting. But you first have to get used to it."
4
pybootchartgui
"Great program. Just install bootchart and pybootchartgui and you get your bootchart as an image file in the /var/log/bootchart folder."
5
firefox
"Since version 4 it's very fast and 5 is even faster. Great browser."
5
nvidia-current
"If it works at all, it's a good driver, but often it fails to run. And setting up 2nd screen is much easier when using the experimental driver. If you don't need to run the most powerful games and your card is not a GeForce GT/GTS/GTX 4xx/5xx, the experimental driver (libgl1-mesa-dri-experimental) is much better."
2
nvidia-settings
"Lots of features but configuring 2nd screen is a pain"
2
nouveau-firmware
"Not needed anymore in Mint 11. Mint 11 needs nvc0 firmware, not nv40/50 firmware."
2
linux-firmware-nonfree
"Don't like the licence but needed to get some hardware working."
4
acroread
"It's in fact a windows app in Wine. I prefer the default viewer of Mint, it's faster and more stable. Adobe's linux reader is only a last resort if anything else fails to open a file."
2
k3b
"Can be a little confusing for newbies but if you know how to use it, it's the best burning program out."
4
skype
"Unfortunately MS owns it now, but at the moment there's nothing wrong with it."
3
gparted
"Best partitioning tool out. Also good for KDE users, it looks much better than KParted. Always useful to have on a live CD."
5
openoffice.org
"Not very easy to crop/rotate images but it is a fine office suite for Linux. The .docx support is not yet 100% OK but converting .docx to .doc or .odf using MS Word solves this."
4
wine
"Not all Windows programs work, but many of them run fine."
