rsync
"... but could do with a tutorial manpage with more detailed examples"
5
filezilla
"use it a lot, very good gui option for ftp, used for bulk uploads to multiple sites"
4
xpn
"not used heavily but have got used to it, no need to change"
3
hexchat
"de-facto gui irc client, use it for inter-office chat & file exchange with ngircd."
4
simple-scan
"use it day-in day-out, tweak quantity results with phatch, way to go."
4
claws-mail
"Solid and well featured. Best of all gui linux email clients"
4
gnumeric
"great support too"
5
ripit
"better than most gui alternatives"
4
cmus
"Nothing like it"
5
muttprint
"This has revolutionised the prosaic printing from Claws Mail. It is installed as an 'Action' since Claws does not allow printer definition as suggested in the Muttprint Manual for Sylpheed."
5
cherrytree
"excellent and well thought out hierarchal note taker (does not import from Gjots2). We need an update to 0.35.9 because 0.32.0 has a bug where 'Tab' in a table deletes the table!"
5
kexi
"Greatly improved in recent incantations. More stable, more features. You really need to build a later version than offered here. I use it all day, every day, from a postgresql server. Good development team actively working on it fixing bugs, adding new features, etc."
4
kruler
"now what I want is screenruler operation with this kruler ruler!"
3
screenruler
"now what I want is the kruler ruler with screenruler operation!"
3
bluefish
"Undoubtedly well-featured and capable. Sorry to say that I find it cumbersome and confusing. Keeping it, but back to my first love - Arachnophilia"
3
phatch-cli
"for processing of multiple image files this handles the job very well. Build up your processing chain from a large repertoire of customisable options, drag and drop and go for coffee. Never fails and I process thousands of images."
5
cups
"it's about time linux got something better. I find it buggy, jobs refuse to print, it shows different printers every day. surely there must be something better - I assume it works better on an apple machine!"
2
micro-inetd
"It works. You must use the full path to your ftpd. It has to be fired up under sudo. It can be run in the background but then there are two processes to kill, check with ps. The second one will remain open and functioning. Best just to run it and squirrel the terminal away. The program is micro-inetd, NOT micro_inetd as in the minimalistic man page."
4
yapet
"simple & reliable"
4
mc
"On every machine I own, indispensible."
5
autocutsel
"The solution for those situations where cut-and-paste between different apps just doesn't want to work"
4
phatch
"processes hundreds of files at a time without missing a beat. allows you to build up one by one all the changes that you want to make to a group of images."
5
gjots2
"neat, I have all my linux knowledge store in it hierarchically"
4
nullidentd
"Simplicity"
4
geneweb
"minimal help available except through yahoo group. when up and running and sorted, this is a good alternative to other genealogy programmes infected with creeping featurism. nice web interface."
4
xfce4-screenshooter
"does the minimum ok."

lifelines
"got married, one son. could not get my parents married or to own me :("

weechat
"as a refugee from a gui client I like this, gets my 5 stars."

pyrenamer
"regex I can cope with, but this crazy system beats me. no help _anywhere_"

midori
"... like _but_ I cannot print out my banking payments from it, have to download and then print :("
3
cairo-clock
"unfortunately the clock is displayed on a solid black square"

obexpushd
"the only way to get files from my Blackberry to laptop. no complaints except why is this not built into the other bluetooth utilities?"
4
remind
"hours of fun bending this to your will."
5
texworks
"I am not a tex fundi and probably need nothing more than this. A great way to start in tex."
