Software reviews
Software Score
pidgin-skype
"Very convenient. I like the option of having my Skype with my other chat accounts. Cool."
4
deluge
"This is my favorite Torrent app! When I'm browsing the web, I don't mind using Opera since it is open anyway. I prefer using Deluge though."
5
wine1.2
"WINE doesn't work for all Windows programs, but it works with many of the ones that I've had to use for school. Can either set up WINE as an emulator in its own window, or set it up to emulate windowed programs. Very useful."
4
brasero
"Easy. Simple layout. Gets the job done."
5
totem
"Simple app. Good GUI. Supports many types of media. Does not have EQ or other features I would like to see. I use VLC for almost all of my multimedia (music, movies, etc)."
3
rhythmbox
"Simple app. Good GUI. Supports many types of media. Does not have EQ or other features I would like to see. I use VLC for almost all of my multimedia (music, movies, etc)."

audacity
"Awesome software! I've only had to use it a few times to edit downloaded songs, but I like it a lot."
5
qdvdauthor
"Crashed everytime I tried to use it..."
2
dvdauthor
"Great CLI for converting M4V files to MPG files. I then use DeVeDe to create an .iso file to burn to a DVD."
5
devede
"Easiest DVD authoring program I've found. I wish it did file conversion, though. I've found the need to convert all my M4V files to MPG using DVDauthor in the command line in order to use DeVeDe to create the .iso and burn to disk."
4
virtualbox-3.1
"VirtualBox is a really good virtualization app! Great for trying new distros, running a Windows VM for Windows-specific applications, or messing around with your own Linux distro. I use VMware mostly because my schoolwork is done with VMware."
4
vlc
"VLC is the STUFF!"
5
gns3
"Very good router emulator. I'm a student at ITT Tech, and this tool has been most useful in my networking classes."
5
pidgin
"I don't do much with chat, but Pidgin allows me to have all of my chat stuff with one app. Simple, easy to use, easy to set up."
5
gnucash
"Good software. BIG learning curve. If you're going to install GNUcash, make sure you take the time to read through the documentation and learn the ins and outs."
3
avant-window-navigator
"AWN helped me create an easy, managable desktop. Most frequently used applications are on the AWN, along with some plugins that came with AWN. Highly recommended."
5
dia
"Great alternative to MS Visio. Dia is not compatible with Visio file formats, which is the only thing I don't like about Dia. Other than that, great software, easy to use and understand."
4
opera
"Great browser! All internet needs in one application: browser, email, downloads, bit torrent client, IRC chat. If I can use one application to do all this, and the one application looks and works wonderfully, why not use it? :)"
5
openoffice.org
"OO.o does everything needed for scholastic/professional office needs. Good word processor, good spreadsheet, good presenter, etc. Cross-compatible with MS Office. What else could you ask for?"
