    Glipper - a great clipboard manager, it's on the repos.
    Avant Window Navigator - very slick dock, requires beryl for it to display correctly.
    jUploadr - java app to upload pictures to flickr, much better than the official windows one.
    Gnome Subtitles - the first subtitle editor in Gnome, to my knowledge, that features video preview. Great little piece of software.
    GCStar - want to make a database of all your dvds, books...? This is the right app to do it with.

    Z and X are the only action keys, and the arrow keys move. In the default game mode, Z shoots and X uses your shields. Try the very last level, it's insane.

    Debian.exe - Aside from having the best domain on the internet (http://goodbye-microsoft.com/), it's a fantastic tool which works seamlessly. Differs from Ubuntu's equivalent because it doesn't install Debian in the Windows partition, it's basically the netinstall CD without the need for a CD. Very, very useful for getting Debian on machines with no CD/USB/Floppy.

    Re: Cool applications you use that others might not know of

    Has anyone mentioned Claws-Mail or Sylpheed Claws?

    IMHO it's the best GTK e-mail client out there, and i prefer it to Evolution and Thunderbird (but i'm a suspect since i don't even use Firefox =P. i use kazehakase, already mentioned in this thread )

    Thanks for mentioning gcstar, molgar. I've dowloaded it and it looks impressive and a bit more sophisticated than alexandria. For those who want to try it, I've found some debs here. Strangely enough this did not solve all my dependencies, and I still needed to install xml::simple (libxml-simpleobject-libxml-perl libxml-simpleobject-enhanced-perl libxml-simple-perl libxml-simpleobject-perl) manually for it to work.

    I don't know if it will replace alexandria on my laptop, but it is good to have it nonetheless.

    the best dictionary that i've found is stardict. it allows ther user to add to the dictionaries (eg add computer dictionaries, geological dictionaries, etc). it even pronounces words where the pronunciation is unclear. other applications that others probably haven't heard of that i use include:
    -solfege - ear training application.
    -mtpaint - a paint type program.
    -desktop data manager - great for screenshots because it allows you to specifiy a screen area as an alternative to capturing the whole screen.
    -meld - an application to find and highlight the differences between any 2 or 3 different files.
    -regexxer - a search and replace text tool.
    -fslint- an application that finds: duplicate files, installed packages,
    bad names, name clashes, temp files, bad symlinks, bad IDs, empty directories, non-stripped binaries, and redundant whitespaces.
