Excellent list of quality opensource Ubuntu applications

Wow, today looks like a great day for me as a Ubuntu user. I normally don’t like stuffs like “Top 10 must have tools for your blah blah” kind of things. I got bored by reading the same stuff again and again especially when I hear application list for windows. But today I came across a very good collection of opensource Ubuntu applications and this one looks very interesting (might be because I’m new to the linux world). I think almost all of these apps can be used on many linux distros and not just Ubuntu.

Since the author is a graphic designer you can see a lot of “graphics” related tools but there are other good collection as well. And my personal favourite among the applications listed is “NetBeans“. Not that I don’t know about NetBeans before, infact, I have been using NetBeans for almost three and a half years now. It’s really a top notch opensource IDE for Java programming.

What applications do you use on your Ubuntu machine? What are your favourite apps?

  1. – Geany, for all coding – it’s a nice IDE that fits me.
    – Gnome DO, for laziness
    – Liferea, for newsfeeds (rss and etc. can open the webpage right inside it!)
    – GScrot, for screenshots (allows a custom selection, drawing on the image, and even uploading!)
    – ubuntu smooth splash – makes the bootup bar go smooth (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=6199130#post6199130)
    – parcellite, to manage the clipboard (allows you to get something back that you copied a while ago… handy)
    – workrave, RSI prevention app

    and that’s about ifor a special list
