I started using Linux Mint around Felicia, then more so with Gloria.

My main interest is to get a good rolling install going. However, I use all/most LM versions by just switching USB memory sticks, but I can only chose one here.

midori
"Browsers must be able to display all pages and perform all functions on the page. Midori can't live up to that. If you can't access message editors on a forum, you're in trouble. This one needs more work."

dooble
"A very new, immature browser at ver. 0.07. It focuses on its search engine, which returns a lot of German links. It won't load some web pages (times out) or it won't run some page elements. It can be really fast, sometimes, though. I just installed it after finding it listed here and I'll watch if it grows. Gave it a neutral rating because it is so new."

drupal6
"Drupal allows you to build a CMS-based web site. It is very mature and well designed and it is set for a major redesign soon with D7. Most of the modules are completely free, not like with Joomla. Start with D6 because it is probably the CMS you should use first, if you need something more than just a blog."

kompozer
"KompoZer is a separate fork of the old Netscape 7.2 suite. It, along with SeaMonkey's Composer, are the two to use. Two very good 4.01 HTML editors for static web pages. Ignore nvu because it is dead code and buggy."

phpgroupware
"Although this groupware was updated recently, it has a slow development rate and only a few developers, so I avoided this one. That should far outweigh any other advantages it may have, so I will give it a neutral score."

typo3
"Typo3 is a CMS from Europe and I found very few people using it in North America limiting getting good local beginners help. Anyone without previous CMS knowledge will probably struggle with this. Use Drupal. "

rhythmbox
"I use this mainly for listening to free Internet Radio stations. It is one of the two such programs that I'be been able to use for this. My music remains unorganised..."

seamonkey
"SeaMonkey is the modernized Netscape 7.2 suite of Internet programs, including a browser, HTML editor and mail. Ver 2.x has greatly improved the browser (it still has some issues with some sites, but works when others don't), the HTML editor (KompoZer is also related) is still very useful, but I don't use the e-mail or other clients anymore."

gimp
"Archaic interface, not intuitive and cumbersome, but full-featured. Most people need a lighter weight, more intuitive image editor, but good ones are difficult to find."

gnome-format
"Select the USB stick or card, pick the file system and click format. Easy"
4
opera
"Main browser, love its web servers, has a few site compatibility issues, add-ons need improvements"
