Lifehacker did a list of the top ten downloads for Ubuntu 9.04. While I agree with some of them, I figured it was time to post a real list (read: mine).
These apps are in daily use at leftystrat’s lair:
- Firefox: no one has come up with a better concept than plugins
- Opera: when you really need to get there
- VLC: plays almost everything
- RSS Owl: yes, it’s java-based, but it does the most for me in RSS reading
- Vinagre: awesome multi-tabbed vnc viewer
- xfe, emelfm2: file managers
- Thunderbird: cross-platform email client – the only one for me
- Mousepad: it’s light, it’s quick, it’s a basic text editor
- VMplayer: my favorite of the emulators
- Utorrent: works just fine under WINE
- Deluge(torrent): works great on every other computer
- Filezilla: ftp/sftp file transfer
Still experiencing the 9.04 problem of programs popping up in the background. Everything else seems to be in order.
