    A few...the ones probably many of you also have...VirtualBox, Steam, Opera, playdeb, etc.

    Virtualbox is already in the repos.

    Ubuntu is quite complete and I don't think there's ever a need for PPAs. For OpenSUSE and Arch, this kind of thing is more necessary. OpenSUSE for example has neither Eclipse nor NetBeans in its standard repos.

    There's still some stuff that you need the PPAs for: most notably, Cinnamon, MATE, and E17.

    Only if you don't need features from the Oracle version.

    No PPAs here, I build the applications I need. That way I know who to blame when it goes wrong
    You think that's air you're breathing now?

    VirtualBox
    Steam
    Oracle Java (WebUpd8)

    Strictly speaking the only one that is a PPA is Java, the others aren't hosted on Launchpad so they should just be called repositories.

    None at the moment actually. I usually have a few (XBMC, etc.), but as of right now I can get what I need from the standard repos.

    Think Cinnamon's in 13.04. If you want MATE with Ubuntu run Mint.

    E17?


    Need I say more?
