Found Linux in 2006, and moved to Mint in 2009. Mint seems to be doing things the sensible way. In My Humble Opinion.
 
I'm also known for "Re-spinning" Linux Mint Distros for the Reglue.org Project. A Project that provides computers for disadvantaged children

gpaint
"Would love to find a package that would allow for simple edits to a screen shot. Also the ablity to resize, etc. Would love the functions of gThumb and this to be merged."

picasa
"It's ok, But if you're using Linux, why not a Native program? I can do most of what it does and more with native programs. Don't care for WINE based programs, or it's Windows 95 look."

gpodder
"Just works, Plain and simple."

worldofgoodemo
"Love it! Got it with the Humble Indie Bundle!"

pino
"Woks ok, but doesn't support multiple streams like Gwibber or Choqok do. BUT it doesn't muddle out like Gwibber when it updates."
4
mplayer
"Does a good job of playing Video and Audio files."

xchat
"Works. I'm not a Big IRC Fan, but I'm able to move the .xchat dir from one machine to anther... Works. :)"

rhythmbox
"I like it. It's useable, but it's not WinAmp or the pre KDE 4 Amarok that I knew and loved. BUT the Built in support for Sharing the Music on the network is great, and I'm able to share Music Libraries with all the households computers. Brilliant! Enjoy the Streaming from the internet Radio Stations as well. (Could use a better list, tho'). All in All, a Really GOOD program."

thunderbird
"I've moved an instance of Thunderbird from a Windows XP machine to Linux and Back without a hitch, just copy the folders over after it's installed, and Viola! All your info and Setttings are there."
5
gimp
"Yet another example of how open source works. Geat program, a little funky to use if you're used to Photoshop, Paintshop, etc... Once you get used to the three windows/screens it's actually a little easier to use. :)"

gparted
"This IS one of the BEST programs ever. Does what it says it's going to do, and does it."

gwibber
"Gwibber Has a nice look and feel. And then when you try to create a status update... The Keyboard response slows down to a crawl. - I can't use it, maybe others won't have this issue."

grsync
"This is a great little program, it could use some tweaking to get it more GUI user friendly, to create lists, etc. Works faster then to drag and drop files."
4
gthumb
"Allows you to do a quick resize or crop of a picture, not as hard to use as the GIMP for simple image tasks, Better then a simple document viewer"
