When reading online posts here and elsewhere online, I've often wondered if it's more satisfying to let someone know if you're going to block them or to just do it anyway without the announcement.

I've appreciated contributions from both of you and hope the hard feelings can subside at some point.  I like the updates to this list.  I'm sure they will benefit me and others who decide to become Linux Lite-ers.

That is an awesome list, and thought I'd contribute to it:

Sorry if this is considered necroposting :D

Regarding FreeCAD (2D drafting)  I would also
suggest   LibreCAD (3D modeling), perhaps this
would be a much better choice for some people.
Pathological tweaker.

Creately is also a graphic editor for Linux that is a great alternative to Microsoft Visio. Creately has everything you need for graphic editing with an extensive shape library, image search and a wide selection of diagram models.
