5
mintmenu
"One of the main reasons for using Linux Mint. Not only for people who come from the Windows world. Even for former Mac users."

picasa

gparted
"I use at least 5 different distros on one hard disk. Gparted is my favourite for partitioning the disk and keeping track of all the partitions."
5
gedit
"I prefer gedit over OpenOffice as long as no complicated text formatting is necessary."
4
openoffice.org
"Lots of features and good MS .doc compatibility. On the other hand text formatting sometimes looks different when re-opening a saved file."
3
chromium-browser
"Good for netbooks because it fits on small screens and is fast. But compatibility for plug-ins like Flash is not good. Didn't display YouTube videos for example."
3
thunderbird
"Upgraded from Thunderbird 2 to 3 yesterday. Upgrade is not easy for inexperienced users since there is no debian package. Took me a while to figure out how to import my mail folder. Nonetheless, I recommend Thunderbird 3 because it brings my IMAP and POP3 inboxes together into one single box."

rednotebook
"Easy to use, feature-rich diary with tagging options"
