remmina
"Works well for remoting over vpn my work win7 desktop. It's fast enough. Haven't used ssh."

soundconverter
"Works well for converting FLAC to MP3, multicore enabled. Haven't used it for much else. Wish it would do SHN to FLAC. Use Traders Little Helper in Wine for the best utility."

5
keepassx
"The best. Cross platform, lots of plugins, encryption, old school. Perfection!"

audacity

5
filezilla
"Filezilla continues to be excellent. Works on all platforms. Slightly slower than expected."
5
gimp

vlc
"It plays most everything, has several geeky features, but lacks good visualizations to music."
4
picasa
"It's way behind the times, with no recent updates. It always seemed to eat extra resources in Ubuntu."

5
bleachbit

wine
"This is the easiest thing to run some of those old windows apps in linux. Come on, many games from years ago is great nastalgia. Let alone many one of a kind utilities not yet ported. What else are you going to do?"
5
krename

5
gnome-mplayer

5
deja-dup
"For a simple backup, it's just that. The basics works perfectly here. As with many of these apps, it's just the basics. grsync is more robust offering technical options for advanced users."
