"One of my default install apps, for when I want maximum control and information on the torrent process."
"Very well made and useful application"
"Brutal chess is straight up eye-cnady. It doesn't have as many features, or as strong of a chess engine as other chess games but like special desktop effects it's just beautifull to watch."
"Wesnoth is a highly polished, expertly crafted, extremely engrossing strategy game. Much like chess; the rules are simple but still lead to endless possibilities. It has great music, a ton of campaigns; this is one of the true gems of FOSS games."
"Chromium doesn't have Firefox's level of customizability yet, but it.is.fast. "
"VLC is the champ at playing media files of all kinds, nothing comes close. It doesn't have as many features for managing media, playlists, alblum art/lyrics, and others, but as far as *playing* media it's the only player you will ever need."
"Scribus always gets added to new installs , should be a default. A great Desktop publishing app. Most folks don't realize how much easier it is to do layout work in a desktop publishing application as opposed to a word processor."
"My favorite Linux terminal. It drops down with a hotkey, it has a nice transparency, tabs. This is a part of my default installs as well."
"Wine is a great compatabilty tool for those Windows apps that are still needed. It doesn't run all Windows software but it runs more and more with each release."
"A great mind-mapping/organizational tool. My favorite concept mapping software."
"Essential for Virtualbox, this is the equivalent of hardware drivers."
"An outstanding virtualization application. This is always installed on every Linux installation (hardware specs permitting) that I do."
"Great hard drive utility to do just about anything to your partitions that you need to, should be installed by default on all distros."
"A great browser that keeps getting better, don't forget to view the extensions on mozilla.com, it's the best part of this great software."
