    hmm good idea :


    xchat http://www.xchat.org
    -> best x chat client, bitchx is the best on console i think.

    gtoaster http://gnometoaster.rulez.org
    -> nice burning program, can decode and burn mp3s on the fly

    sylpheed http://sylpheed-claws.sf.net
    -> claws branch of sylpheed, very good email / news reader

    crossfire http://crossfire.real-time.com
    -> online role playing game

    audiogalaxy http://www.audiogalaxy.com
    -> for mp3s ...

    My favorite apps are:

    xfce: www.xfce.org
    gnomesword: gnomesword.sourceforge.net
    vim: www.vim.org
    evolution: www.gnome.org

    I like a whole bunch more, but these are my absolute favs.

    Cheers

    Electric Eyes and GQView for image viewing, GIMP for image manipulation, Konqueror for web browsing, Kate for text editing, KDE for a WM/DM, Noatun for MP3s, and KDict is kind of nice.
