pianobooster
"Surprised to have no hardware issues; in fact, it found and connected to my midi keyboard with zero config. The UI is still a bit rough but should be a 5-star apppost-beta."

joe
"If there is a better cli text editor, it'd have to offer a 'Joe-mode' since the key commands are too familiar. It's not something that can be solved with an alias (like 'ls' in a DOS env)."

qbittorrent
"Fantastic BT client; the devlopers have addressed all fundamental issues and taken it to the standard torrent app."

gnome-tetravex
"Easy to learn and play. On any new install or upgrade I use it to tweak the mouse settings. Scoreboard filled with 10-20s times means mouse-response and accuracy are optimal."

apparmor
"This might be helpfult to some admin managing 25+ networked desktops with identical hardware and software installed but that's selinux's turf already. Unlike selinux, this service will silently prevent necessary changes to system settings (such as setting the default web browser) without actively monitoring its log. The problems one might have with it seem to depend on when it is installed on a system; ideally it would be part of the OS setup so it will have a context for any hardware, file systems, services, software and users/groups setup on the system. The amount of work it takes to keep a user-customized desktop system running without apparmor hinderences is, imo, unjustifiable. If it worked in conjunction with the package management system policies wouldn't be so bothersome to the system user."

"Nice Octave wrapper. Auto-watches Octave variables, output, etc. and has tools to create and/or modify variable/dataset values. Not sure of the GUI's impact on memory or processing speed though."
