Software reviews
Software Score
xscreensaver
"Forgive them, for they know not what they say. Xscreensaver is the best screensaver as of 2016 in any Linux distro. Period."
5
krita
"Best graphical editor in Linux or Windows, bar none."
5
mintbackup
"Simple with few options, but will indeed backup all files in Home to allow restoration, although that can also be done via a file manager as well. However this is guided and maybe safer. Also backs up the list of applications and will reinstall them on a new OS, but that function is unwieldly; the list of apps grows to dozens due to minor preinstalled apps. Whereas you may have installed 3-4 apps in addition to what came with Linux Mint, this backup tool will backup all 50 apps that available. To reinstall your 3-4 apps, you have to check those apps individually from the list of 50+. No provision for any backup of Linux system config files in /etc."

crawl-tiles
"This is no old game, this is an actively developed, highly refined, extremely detailed, yet easy to play, at the same time. Turn-based keyboard game relying upon strategy, rather than reflexes. No mouse needed, nor much hardware power. If you like D&D, you will like this."
5
gpick
"I have tried this several times and still do not understand how it can be useful in any way. I prefer Gcolor2, which works as expected."
2
gcolor2
"This is really easy to use and just what I need for web design. Better than the others!"
5
filezilla
"Filezilla is awesome and useful for web dev with many powerful features."
5
pan
"A bit buggy and dev is just about frozen, but this is still superior to the latest version of Windows's Forte Agent in some respects! For instance, pan will remember downloads if the computer loses power or restarts. Agent simply forgets 'em. The web site may have a more updated beta version available."

digikam
"not a fan of the odd user interface, which compels the user to create and configure "libraries," or whatever. Where is the app that will simply navigate to a directory, display the images, and allow basic edits?"
3
cryptkeeper
"Seems to work OK so far in Linux Mint 17.3 Cinnamon. To avoid the seg fault, the user must run with elevated privileges in Linux Mint. After installing, you should create a launcher on the desktop, and then for the command, gksu cryptkeeper."
5
gsmartcontrol
"A nice front-end to view S.M.A.R.T. data on hard drives and determine if they are OK."
5
qbittorrent
"I also like Ktorrent, but qbittorrent seems to get quite a bit more dev love, and it is richer in features."
5
gimp
"I dislike the interface. I restart my computer into Windows whenever I need to edit images."
2
gparted
"Absolutely essential to managing linux and Windows partitions. What would we do without it?"
5
bleachbit
"Basically similar to ccleaner in Windows. Essential for wiping old drives prior to selling them on Ebay or giving them away."
5
wesnoth
"One of the better free open-source games for Linux. Needs more developers!"
5
thunderbird
"I have always used nothing but thunderbird in Linux."
5
mpv
"Highly recommended in conjunction with Smplayer. It is basically the faster, more updated fork of mplayer."
5
smplayer
"Powerful front-end for mpv, a fast player of local video files in linux because it has hardware support."
5
firefox
"Works fine in Linux Mint 17.3, no problems whatsoever. I love add-ons Self-Destructing Cookies,Stylish,Adblock plus, Cl;ear Cache, New Tab Override (browser.newtab.url replacement), New Scrollbars (aka NoiaScrollbars),and NoScript."
5
okular
"the best pdf viewer on either windoze or linux. period."
5
rekonq
"Great tool for when a lean browser is needed."
5
ktorrent
"Extremely fast on 64bit linux mint kde and also xfce"
5
crawl
"by console they mean text. by tiles, they mean graphical. Both versions of this game should be classified under turn-based games. It is excellent."
5
dolphin
"Feature rich, easy to use! Dolphin I think is the best."
5
kate
"On the plus side, supports .doc. On the minus side, there is no support for macros--keyboard shortcuts. How can you proofread without macros? I chose Jedit for macro support."
3
jedit
"At last, a Linux text editor with very good macro support!"
5
k3b
"I love k3b so much I'm tempted to try KDE"
5
vlc
"I use only VLC to play music or video and have removed all other players from my computers."
5
lxsplit
"Excellent to merge (append) many files into one. No need for GUI, because it can be used from within File Manager by adding a custom action. In Linux Mint Xfce's Thunar, use syntax "lxsplit -j %f" for all types of files matching *.001."
