rednotebook
"Perfect standalone application for appointments!"
5
clipit
"Great! Loaded with the most useful features you'll ever need with a clipboard recorder, not to mention it can save a lot of entries. Most clipboard managers are able to store only around 100 entries, this one practically unlimited. I'm using 500, not sure how much, but more than enough."
5
nautilus
"If only it was a bit lighter. :)"
5
mintinstall
"I don't have any probs with it. Comprehensive and improving with every release."
4
simple-scan
"Simple, does its job."
5
brasero
"Works perfectly here, never had a problem with it. Highly recommended, straight forward and most of all, easy to use."
5
gdebi
"Useful."
5
gthumb
"Great software for handling large collections, importing files and overall management. Should be included by default on every system."
5
mintupdate
"This application is a life saver! Compared to other updaters, e.g. that of Ubuntu, which tends to break systems due to kernel updates, this one is the key element when it comes to a stable system. Kudos to the developers for bearing stability and usability in mind."
5
synaptic
"Easy to use, understand and very straighforward. What I'd suggest is to makeit a bit more user friendly by adjusting the GUI a bit."
4
guake
"A must. Very comfortable usage, should be included by default to every distro."
5
audacious
"Would be great if it had more features like directory play and right-click options such as delete item, move, rename, copy and so on."
3
ark
"It was ok, but nothing compares to Gnome Archive Manager rules."
4
file-roller
"Undoubtedly the best archive manager for Linux. Should be included everywhere by default, not just Gnome."
5
xarchiver
"Not very useful. There are better alternatives out there."
3
squeeze
"Lacks certain very useful features. Like a simple drag'n'drop."
1
transmission
"Good client but lacks some essential features others have, like DHT technology, the operation to select which files to download also doesn't work and is rarely updated."
3
chromium-browser
"Ok changing the rating for the last time. After comparing this and Google's version, this is certainly better for Linux, Google's version is better for Windows and this has, since its arrival, surpassed all the other browsers with its features, lightness and speed. The most suitable browser for any user. The sync feature with your Gmail account is priceless!"
5
kupfer
"This has proven to be extremely useful and works. Saves you ample time while working. Don't know where your files are located but you know their name? Kupfer finds them for you, with a few keystrokes you're editing / viewing / playing your files in no time!"
5
giver
"Would have great potential due to an easy to use and understandable interface, but unfortunately doesn't work at all and I haven't seen a single update for it."
1
bluefish
"Very impressive! Got all the features one could need, like spellcheck, auto-complete forms, hints to every command, good for a beginner also. :)"
5
docky
"The only comparable difference between this and AWN is that Docky is very light."
5
qbittorrent
"Absolutely amazing! Blazing fast! Possibly the best torrent client out there!"
5
alarm-clock-applet
"Simply amazing!"
5
shutter
"Brilliant! This software is a must!"
5
midori
"Not really a fan of it. Crashed on first use and besides, if you want a really good Webkit web browser, either Epiphany or Chromium."
1
epiphany-extensions
"Not all of them work."
3
opera
"Though Opera was always the leader in innovation and implementing the most versatile and essential features being incorporated into their products, all of them seem to be constantly in Beta stage, which I find very unpleasant. Their browser is equipped with what you will always need but all those features need development and lack full functionality since early stages, though have always been a great source of inspiration for customizers and competitors alike."
2
gimp
"At first seems a bit clumsy, but after you start to work with this tool you'll eventually find yourself hooked to it. Better than Photoshop if you ask me. Why? A number of reasons. First of, it's free, it's light and very extensible unlike Photoshop, which is too dang expensive and everything for it is expensive too. GIMP has 100% .psd compatibility and dispones with features PS will never have. People know what people need and they make it that way. Congrats for making the best raster program ever!"
5
gimp-plugin-registry
"Should be included by default. So you don't have to manually add it."
5
gimp-resynthesizer
"Must have along with other plugins."
5
gimp-data-extras
"This could be included by default."
5
gimp-gap
"Must have along with other plugins."
5
gimp-save-for-web
"Must have along with other plugins."

gimp-texturize
"Must have along with other plugins."

timidity
"Comes without a GUI, how is one supposed to maintain playback?"
1
easytag
"Makes your life so easy! Exactly what you'd expect from a audio tagger. Does corrections of files, renaming, writing tags, anything you'd imagine you need from a software like this, it does it all. Sheer excellence, congrats to developers."
5
streamtuner
"Excellent! Works as it should."
5
vlc
"VLC is my number one pick since using linux and it does its job perfectly. Very good audio and video player, supports a large variety of formats, possibly the largest. If it had features like those of Quod Libet, my favourite audio player, it would be the only software I'd use for media playback."
5
arora
"So far the best Webkit browser out there. Takes advantage of all the features of Webkit, like being super fast and light, combined with efficiency of excellent plugin handling, great AdBlock features, content management and bookmarks. Also, renders webpages quite nicely. The only downside I've found is rendeing of flash videos, which happened to make my computer freeze and on most pages loaded only sound, not video after using the middle mouse button to scroll."
4
epiphany-browser
"Had to change my rating on this based on my long-time usage of this browser. I came to find it both pleasing and not at the same time, I'll explain why. The Pros are it's very light, extremely fast and comes equipped with most stuff you will ever need. The Cons are the following: bookmark management is horrible, seriously, this one needs a lot of improvement, secondly, it crashes a lot, has problems rendering a lot of webpages properly, has problems with text kerning and loading flash properly and addon management is not possible if you install custom scripts via Greasemonkey, you're not able to maintain, de-install e.g. and so on. While easy on resources and better than Firefox, faster than Safari, you might consider what I wrote before based on my experience with this browser."

soundconverter
"The only thing I dislike about it is when you insert multiple files or a folder it doesn't convert them immediately and crashes. You have to even so do everything one by one. Also, when trying to convert multiple files it drains the CPU heavily and my machine ain't a weak one. Other than that, function-wise, nothing on earth can beat this. All you need is all you got right with this package. :)"
4
ogmrip
"With all of its features surpasses all of the available in the repos, but still is very slow at compiling a disc, drains the CPU heavily (using a hyper-threaded dual-core by the way) and still came up with errors or hang the PC. Other than that, superb quality of the outcoming file. Best ripper ever made. If the devs make the improvements I mentioned this app will be the king of all ripping software."

xfburn
"Had to change my review as after using it made several disks unusable both on my brand new laptop and my old desktop."

pysdm
"Does its job. Superb :)"

alarm-clock
"Definately a great and usefull app :)"
5
diffuse
"Best out there :)"
5
gpicview
"The best :) suits all your needs, if you want something simple, very usable and intuitive :) you got everything where you can see it and it's super light :) this should be included as a default app for mint :)"
5
kpackagekit
"Very handy for keeping your system updated. Does tasks such as critical system update without you having to do it manually. Also, if you need to browse for multiple packages from a specific file, you'll find them all in one place."
5
xfce4-screenshooter
"It's the deal! :) Efficient."
4
fontmatrix
"Very good and useful, what you need is what you got in this package :)"

dvdstyler
"Doesn't work. Didn't read disc contents properly."

quodlibet
"This definitely is the player of choice. If you haven't been using an explorer-like player before, now is the time. You'll be amazed how intuitive it is and you'll get used to its features very quickly. It is the best way to manage your music all in one place. Explorer type players are the best option for simple reasons - they make your life very easy. You don't have to create playlists, save them, browse for files, you got everything in one place. One feature I'd suggest though is to implement a folder erase option within the player."
