songbird
"Used this program for a long time, before the devlopers dropped support for Linux. It may still work on Linux for now, but I have moved on to Audacious and I have not looked back. Was a good program-- I people who do not mind that it is not supported should try it out."

"I tried to use it to encode files playable by the PSP, but it did not work. It looks like it would be a good program, perhaps for other file conversions, however if you are trying convert a video file for playback on a Sony PSP system, this is not where to look."

"I've been using this program for years now, and until very recently, I would not have hesitated to give it a full recommendation. There is a reason it is the default in almost every version of Linux: it has all the features of word (with add-ones), and seemed very stable-- three or so years without losing a document is pretty impressive to me. Even during power outrages, this thing always managed to give my work back to me, and I grew accustomed to using it and even depending on it. It open Microsoft word files, and any other document really, without any problems-- formatting or otherwise. But now, I highly recommend keeping this program away from important work. After years of stable use, in the last few weeks it has left me with a 0kb document SEVREAL TIMES, with the backup also being 0kb and no hope of recovery-- the file was just GONE. This has happened more than once, and this last time it has cost me days of work. Each time, I had saved the file normally. This program, as it is currently, is unstable and unreliable. And that is a sad thing, because it used to be my most relied on program... Now, I recommend Abiword or some other alternative over this, at least until this crucial bug is fixed."

mozilla-plugin-vlc
"I love VLC, and that is why I uninstalled the mplayer Plugins that come via default and installed this instead. I DO NOT RECOMEND INSTALLING THIS PLUGIN! While it will play the files once the mplayer Plugin is removed, it has no controls whatsoever, making it effectively useless. Keyboard controls can be used, but they are slow and unresponsive, and files play slower then if simply streamed with the normal VLC. Until this gets an update for these much needed features, STAY AWAY! It isn't worth the effort."

firefox
"Chrome may be all the rage nowadays, but I think all always use Firefox over any other browser. There are many reasons for this, but the main one is customization-- what it lacks in slim size, Firefox makes up for in customization. You name a feature, Firefox has an add-one for that. From super-useful stuff like add-block-plus and the Firefox Backup Extension to simple things like FabTabs and Stylish, Firefox truly has something for every type of web browser. If you don't use your browser much, or use it primarily for Goodle Apps, the chrome might be the better choice-- but if you are on the web more often then not, the I think the Firefox is the number one choice."

"This is a awesome game that doesn't get the attention it deserves. I recommend playing one player mode first (to learn the basics), then starting a multiplayer battle game-- as that is really where this game shines. The unit and research customization makes for a different game every time, even if you choose the same map-- and you might, as the maps are all well thought out, and if you don't like them, you can download extra maps from the site. You can also add custom music and even mods that can change the game significantly. A fair warning, however-- games against other players can draw out for hours, so make sure you have time on your hands-- this isn't a “pick up and play” type of game. If your looking for a good RTS and have friends who also are, however, look no more: this is your game."

vlc
"I've been using VLC for ages and can say that it is the best movie player available, and not bad for music, either. I wouldn't use anything other then VLC for watching movies, and it is always one of the first things I install on a new OS. The only “buggy” part of it is the skins feature (which I suggested you shy away from), everything else about it is top-notch, and I have no hesitation in saying that VLC is the only movie player you'll ever need."
