It's the well-known 'favorite apps questionnaire'. We haven't done this one in a while, IIRC. The last time we did, soren mentioned mpd and ncmpc, which I found to be pretty useful. (I wonder where he got off to anyway...)

Anyway, my list:


EditorGVim
TypesettingLaTeX
File Managementbash
BrowserFirefox/Opera
IRCXChat
AIMGaim Pidgin
TerminalTerminal (with GNU screen)
Window ManagerXfce (Maybe going back to wmaker)
Mediamplayer
Image ViewingMirage

Why am I being a hypocrite for failing to mention mpd? Well I just think mplayer is best overall. It plays my FLV files from YouTube. mpd + ncmpc is the best playlist-based music app though, even if it doesn't cover some formats I've used.

Opera appears to use less memory than Firefox over time, but I can't be quite sure yet. It seems snappier, subjectively, but acts weird on some sites.

My current KDE install consists of just kdebase + kdegraphics and their dependencies. arts is evil so I turned it off. I also killed all animations I could find(like the bouncing icon when you start a program).

I would use kopete instead of gaim / pidgin and stay QT, but I can't really figure out kopete's way of dealing with IRC.

Most of those apps understand the vi-like keys.
I use mplayer as it was a client-server app, so maybe I should give mpd a try.

Me too (while in SOHO), but I can't get it to work with jabber SSL conections. It just won't work with the qca plugin.

* my first linux box was a very old machine with no x, I am used to vi, a hanu post gave me gvim, but look extrange to my eyes, will replace vi in a few weeks, when I get used to it.
Abiword, is probably the best office app in the linux world! Do all the job with minimal resources, just like I like.

Hehe, I cheated...  Cheesy. I quoted The Headacher's post and edited the table columns. Then cut and pasted it above the quote. Try clicking on "quote" for his post (or mine) and you'll see what I mean... Wink

Editor: Emacs (usually in terminal)
Terminal: XFCE Terminal
File Manager: bash
Window Manager: XFCE
Media: I don't care as long as it plays
Browser: Firefox
Word Processor: Still looking for something like the old school AppleWorks. I hate OpenOffice and Abiword.

Beyond this, there isn't any type of application I use frequently enough to even qualify as having a favorite.

AppleWorks: What distinguished that? There may be something similar.
