gtkhash
"Works as it should, lightweight, and is intuitive. Couldn't ask for A a better hash checker!"
5
nvidia-prime
"Works great and is actively maintained. Just wish Nvidia could have their software and firmware be open source like AMD does!"
5
virtualbox-dkms
"Works fine but it's closed source and Oracle has a less-than-stellar security patching history. Will be moving to Qemu-KVM which is open source and designed specifically for Linux."

gparted
"Very useful for seeing what's taking up storage space on your drive(s) -- comparible to WizTree for Windows. Gparted is an absolute must-have!"
5
qemu-kvm
"Works great and it's open source (unlike VirtualBox and other virtual machines). Qemu-KVM is a great privacy and security choice."
5
gnome-calculator
"It works as it should and it's lightweight. Can't beat that!"
5
gnome-screenshot
"It will take your screenshots. Just wish I could crop the screenshots in it, paint them to block out any sensitive info, and that it would automatically copy to clipboard. "

virtualbox-3.1
"Works as it should although I'm looking to switch to Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) though since it's open source and designed specifically for modern Linux operating systems."
5
chromium-chromedriver
"Works fine. I installed it to open books in PDF format and use the Read Aloud extension to listen to them but it seemed to stop reading frequently. Ultimately I ended up going with Brave Browser for listening to PDFs and hardened Firefox for daily browsing. Chromium works as it should though and it's the default browser for CalyxOS so I can only assume it is a solid browser. :)"

org.signal.Signal
"Install the APK from signal.org instead! This flatpak will fill continuously unnecessarily fill your storage and if you eventually run out, it will be a pain trying to sign back in to Linux (especially if your drive is encrypted). This happened to me and I ended up needing to boot into Windows, set up a Linux Mint ISO file on a USB, boot from it and then delete enough items in my trash bin to be able to boot back into Linux to delete this version of Signal and other data on my drive (mainly backups). Besides that, Signal is a phenomenal service and if you can, please support them with donations and/or following their social media. :)"

io.freetubeapp.FreeTube
"FreeTube is awesome! It provides all of the functionality of using YouTube minus your activity being monetized and stored indefinitely. I've used Invidious but it doesn't have all of the functionality that FreeTube does nor the aesthetics. Check it out and if you can, support its developer. He works on FreeTube in his free time and has made quite the impressive app free of charge. If you have any questions, he's very active in the FreeTube Matrix and subreddit, both of which are liked on the website."
