qpdfview
"Best PDF reader on Linux by far. Feels nice and lightweight and fast, but still full featured. Reminds me of SumatraPDF."
5
alarm-clock
"Simple and flexbile"
5
git-svn
"Works suprisingly well. A must if you are stuck with an svn repo but want the power of a local git repo."
5
scala
"Combines the best elements of both typed and dynamic languages, as well as functional and procedural languages. A big step up from plain java and has roughly equivalent performance. Can be a little esoteric sometimes. Definitely worth learning if your a java developer."
5
git
"Great dvcs, but has a bit of a learning curve. Very powerful, but some simple tasks are not as intuitive. Make sure everyone knows the basics because it's a lot easier for developers to accidently edit the history and possibly cause code loss! I recommend using mercurial instead if you plan to do any development on windows or are looking for something a bit more simple."
5
mercurial
"Great dvcs. Easier to pick up than git (especially if you are used to svn), although perhaps not as powerful. Has much better support on windows so use if you plan on doing any cross platform development."
5
ant
"Might be good for some tasks, but chances are if you are building a java project, you want to use maven instead. Having used both, maven is a vast improvement (still not perfect though). Ant's "extra flexibility" more pain than it's worth. If you really need the extra flexibility use maven to exec ant tasks when needed."
3
maven2
"Industry standard for building java projects. Way better than ant. It does take a bit of learning and can be a bit verbose for some simple tasks, but is very mature and widely accepted. There are some alternatives, but none are quite as production ready as maven."
4
pinta
"Great graphics program that fills the niche between gimp and paint. Very similar to the excellent paint.net. Great when you don't need the complexity of gimp, but could still benefit from things like layers, transparency, gradients, effects, etc."
5
frogatto
"Suprisingly well polished platformer. Quality I'd expect from a commercial game."
5
backintime-gnome
"Best client based backup I've tried for linux. Efficient storage using hardlinks. Quick backups using diffs. Easy to schedule. Smart deletion of old backups. Everything you could ask for in a client side backup tool."
5
guake
"Really convenient if you use the CLI a lot. Decent customization options, but could be better."
5
rabbitvcs-nautilus
"OK for small repos, but chokes on large ones. Details here: http://blog.rabbitvcs.org/archives/164. I use pagavcs instead. It's a similar TortoiseSVN clone, but doesn't choke like RabbitVCS. Although it doesn't have quite as many features and isn't as mature."

inkscape
"Great vector drawing app for linux and windows."
5
backuppc
"Great home network backup server. Relatively easy to setup although still probably not for novices. You'll need to know a bit about rsync/smb/tar. You can backup windows clients using smb or rsyncd if you install DeltaCopy on the windows client. However, it's server pull only, no client push. Great for central backup management, but checkout rdiff-backup if you want single user backups."
5
rdiff-backup
"Best backup software I've used. Unencrypted mirrors, reverse incrementals, minimized disk usage, and extremely efficient bandwidth usage. However, no gui. Backups take less disk space and bandwidth than rsync, but more CPU so it might be slower. Use rsync if you are CPU bound and have plenty of storage space. Also check out duplicity if you need encryption."

bum
"I consider it necessary on any linux system."

flobopuyo
"Excellent Puyo Puyo clone"
