"One of the most feature-full graphical frontends for Git currently available."
"More capable than tomboy. Using it via PPA like @feluxe, though."
"If your privacy imports to you, then Enigmail is a must (provided you do use Thunderbird)."
"Vim is still the most versatile editor which became a nice, though not 100% integrated GUI in this GTK version. Once you’ve learned the most important ones of its cryptic commands, you’ll write unbeatably fast. And this is true since the beginnings of the UNIX era ;-)"
"I consider it a must-have for anybody who’s using more than his mother tongue. It’s nothing else than a fast but specialized web browser that displays the results of a query neatly arranged in a single tab. As a consequence you’ll have to dig yourself for off-line dictionaries, but you could as well add online sources. I’m using lots of dictionaries, online resources, and local programs via GoldenDict — and it works like a charm."
"The ideal tool in Linux’ defense in face of a presentation with a beamer, or the family sitting in front of a large TV panel and waiting for that HD video from the notebook… Properly configured, it can achieve much more with a single press of a button than Windows or even Mac OS X."
"Almost invisible, very easy to use & configure. It couldn’t be done better."
"It has all I want from a display manager, so I don’t even want it themed otherwise. But seriously: λx.x∙Display∙Manager ?"
"It’s getting better and better. Its usability lies somewhere between Apple and Windows. Thanx Cupertino, if only Airplay would be that open, too!"
"It’s a kinda swiss army’s backup tool. Although it needs some understanding, it covers all use cases from the beginner’s (in the basic configuration) to the specific needs of a nerd (with a fine-tuned configuration)."
"Using Opera since its very beginnings. If it was open source, the community could jump in to save Presto, its engine, like Mint did save GNOME 2 with MATE. I also liked very much its built-in e-mail client—I’ve never ever used another one on the PC for years now."
"It brings out the best in any touchpad, but you can’t avoid manual work: http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/1361"
