5
openoffice.org
"Top opensource office suite. I have used it daily over the years. Will being interesting to see if LibreOffice really will knock it off top spot when up and running."

banshee
"Best music player and library for Gnome. Nice features and plugins. I never use Banshee for video but for music I much prefer it to Rhythmbox."
5
compiz-fusion-plugins-extra
"One of the first things I add on a clean install, would love to see it in Mint as standard."
5
blender
"Great program although the interface is quite ugly. You need Blender 2.5 for Openshot 3D titles etc."
5
inkscape
"Another top quality program for Free for Linux. If you use or work with vector graphics you need this program."
5
mintinstall
"Nice program easy to use good way to find what you need, Interface could be a little prettier when compared to others but on the whole another piece of Mint magic."
4
openshot
"Having tried numerous other video editors on linux, I settled on Openshot, the developer keeps adding to it, thus it keeps getting better. A real Linux gem."

5
mintmenu
"Mintmenu is quite simply the best menu for Gnome bar none."
5
gimp
"Having used photoshop in a previous windows life. To be able to use an open-source program like this on linux is a real pleasure."
