Must Have Software - 09-16-2008, 01:52 PM
This is a copy of Dunhamzzz's Windows "must have software" post, with my Linux recommendations:
Incredibly lightweight + versatile media player. Same choice as XP, because it's a fantastic app but also multi-platform (and open source!)
The biggest open-source browser is still arguably the best, and is the default browser on the majority of the most popular Linux distributions (including Ubuntu) with good reason.
Most major Linux distros now have built-in PDF support, including Ubuntu, but there is a (proprietary) Linux version of Adobe Reader available.
Probably the best free (as in speech) email client on Windows and Linux - and the default for most distros too.
Wide range of protocols supported, multi-platform and open-source.
Please feel free to suggest any more applications you've had experience with and I will add them.
