Re: What's your favourite FLOSS?

Hi,
A year ago, I asked debian-user about favourite applications. The big
winners in that thread were GIMP, Firefox, K3b, gThumb, and
Thunderbird. I would like to start it again, and I would like those
who are get bored by this to please pardon me.

Here goes my new list (If you don't use certain things, please leave
the brackets blank like I did for audio editor, instead of leaving
them occupied with previous entries; this is to make the counting more
accurate):

Haven't been using debian for more than a few months, but here's some of my favorites: :-)

* audio editor [ GLAME, audacity ]
* audio player [ xmms, rhythmbox ]
* cd-ripper [ grip ]
* Desktop Environment [ GNOME ]
* DBMS [ ]
* development [ anjuta, gtkmm, java ]
* disc burner [ nautilus-cd-burner (really nice because it's "integrated" to desktop, ie. sort of "reacts" when blank discs are inserted, etc.) ]
* e-mail client [ Mozilla Mail, Thunderbird ]
* file manager [ nautilus ]
* finance [ ]
* ftp [ gftp ]
* image editor [ GIMP (Don't use that much) ]
* image viewer [ gthumb ]
* instant messenger [ ekiga (this one is an "offshoot" of gnomemeeting and allows for videoconferencing) ]
* mathematics [ calculator ]
* misc utilities [ cron, sudo, dpkg, apt-get ]
* p2p [ ]
* package manager [ synaptic ]
* pdf-reader [ evince, xpdf ]
* spreadsheet [ openoffice ]
* tag editor [ easytag ]
* terminal emulator [ gnome-terminal ]
* text editor [ vi, gedit ]
* 3D animation [ ]
* video player [ mplayer ]
* web browser [ mozilla browser ]
* word-processor [ openoffice ]
* (unreleased) [ ]
* (great honours) [ Linux, GCC, Bash, Xorg ]

note: you don't have to be a user of an application in order like it ;-)


I've placed them from most to least preferred (though I use them all when needed!)
