fslint
"I wish this came up in a search for the keyword "duplicate". Is it an interface for fdupes? Does it have that as an option?"

calibre
"We have found it at last, the perfect e-reader."

thunderbird
"I will say it gets the job done, but when it crashes, it's not fun."

geany-plugins
"There can be found not a slaggard among them."

calibre-bin
"We have found it at last, the perfect e-reader."

chromium-browser
"Not bad, and it's pretty extendable. However, competing browsers have made much more progress with their APIs. Furthermore, this browser does not respect your privacy one little bit."

glom
"This is much easier to use than Openoffice Base. Also, Base has quite a few subtle bugs on linux machines."
5
cheese
"This works well, does what it's supposed to do."
4
cssed
"This simple, quick, easy program does exactly what it sets out to do. Anytime you have to make or modify a CSS file and want to see the whole picture, fire it up!"

banshee
"This indexes ALL your media files, not just your mp3s. We're talking downloaded youtube videos, m4a, flv, and avi. It's easier than ever to make automatic playlists with this. It also includes all the same features as a standard player, like radio, scrobbling, and linking to other music sources. It even runs on windews!"
5
warsow
"This game was really fast paced. It's fun, zany, fast paced, and fast enough for a quick shred game with friends you know. DO NOT install from the software manager, though! Install this from the website, or you cannot play against people who use other distributions!"

fusion-icon
"This makes it easy to take control of desktop effects, for those of us who need to. It is also useful if compiz interferes with a 3d application, or for any case where it helps to temporarily disable it."

vlc
"This program fulfills its function well."

xfishtank
"The fish are but sprites!"

sun-java6-jre
"Small file. Nice."

giver
"It's quick and easy, but you cannot send folders. Also, it does not give you any feedback if you drag something to it that it cannot send."

acroread
"Slow, but it gets the job done."

gcolor2
"For quick color picking. Fewest clicks needed to get the job done of any program like this I have seen."

spring
"Do you want epic battles? Do you want breathtakingly gigantic scenes of glorious destruction and heart-pounding action? The graphics on this game are amazing, especially given the infinite scalability. Giant battles? Why, Yes! Why fight a war with subtlety when you can send a WALL OF PLANES at your enemy? Or a gigantic artillery that sprays plasma bolts all the way across the map?"

vinagre
"This client is the simplest to use of all those I have come across. When things go wrong, though, they can be difficult to diagnose and fix. Still, overall, it is a solid, consistent, usable program, which is designed to do what it purports to do, and does what it's designed to do."
4
audacity
"It does what it is designed to do, simply, and well."

beagle
"This has saved me much time at work, like when I needed to find that pesky presentation from several years ago, or needed bring up a data-sheet quickly."
5
gnome-office
"These programs are fast and efficient, especially gnucash and inkscape."
4
geany
"Geany approaches perfection not because there is nothing left to add, but because it has so little left to take away."
5

"This program has helped me to impress my boss, and makes many difficult tasks easy. No more scanners and whiteout for us."
5
gigolo
"This program solves network file sharing familiarly and simply."

5
filezilla
"It works. On Windows too."
4
miro
"Great program. 'Een Sofiet Miro, video come to YOU!' (Also watch you. You get the idea.)"
4
pidgin
"Pidgin is the GNU of chat clients. Yes, it does everything. Yes, it's free. Yes, it's easy to use. No, we still can not seem to get the word out."
5
k3b
"If you need something other than brasero, try k3b on for size. Sometimes where brasero fails, k3b will succeed."

openoffice.org
"It. Just. Works."
5
gparted
"gparted doesn't just frontend fdisk. It demystifies partitions. In one fell swoop, gparted brings the most arcane task new users face up to their level at almost every step. Also pretty polished."

virtualbox-3.1
"All of my coworkers were impressed with my "windows tab". "Oh, yeah, windows? For me, it's just another linux program.""

avidemux
"Avidemux is difficult for a novice to use, but it has many features."
4
thunar
"Thunar can extend to cover the features of other filemanagers, it uses far less resources."
