I hope we make the cut :)


Internet cli application/browser

--- Code: ---$ apt-cache policy uzbl
  Installed: 0.0.0~git.20120514-1.1
  Candidate: 0.0.0~git.20120514-1.1
  Version table:
 *** 0.0.0~git.20120514-1.1 0
        500 trusty/universe i386 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

--- End code ---
Flash and java work with no special tweaks. My favorite terminal based browser.

Radio streaming in terminal

--- Code: ---$ apt-cache policy moc
  Installed: 1:2.5.0~beta1+svn20131120-1
  Candidate: 1:2.5.0~beta1+svn20131120-1
  Version table:
 *** 1:2.5.0~beta1+svn20131120-1 0
        500 trusty/universe i386 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

--- End code ---

also a favorite of mine. Another is

--- Code: --- apt-cache policy cmus
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 2.5.0-4build1
  Version table:
     2.5.0-4build1 0
        500 trusty/universe i386 Packages

--- End code ---

A good file manager I also like is

--- Code: ---harry@harry-Latitude-XT2:~$ apt-cache policy spacefm
  Installed: 0.9.4-1
  Candidate: 0.9.4-1
  Version table:
     0.9.4-1 0
        500 trusty/universe i386 Packages

--- End code ---

I know spacefm is not maintained anymore by ignorant guru but there are some killer plugins for burning isos and other things in it. Plus it is a double paned file manager. It does not take up much space and can run alongside Thunar.

Depends on ones tastes I guess.

Thank you Valtam for stickying it and changing the title, also for your help  :)
The most thanks though for making an awesome Linux distro. I just collected my second issue of Linux Format today, it states next months issue will have an article about the best Distro's of 2014.

Thank you bitsnpcs, an excellent resource. Also added a more accurate Title for the thread. Stickied :)
