    Here are some programs which make life easy for me:

    1. Enlightenment 17 (it seems to be at a stable point right now, not much to be bothered about)
    2. Thunar (if I had to put up with Nautilus in Enlightenment, I wouldn't be using a file manager)
    3. GNOME System Monitor (have any programs that have been acting up lately? )

    gimp gets taken for granted, i think. thunar is great (management without fanfare and is easy to use). nano's awful handy, too. streamtuner is convenient and quick. kscd just plays your damn cds, period.

    1. KOffice (Nothing in particular, just KOffice)
    2. Flock (del.icio.us integration, blogging via Deepest Sender, and the web clipboard)
    3. Amarok (I love the interface)
    4. Yakuake (I love having a drop-down terminal just a key press away)
    5. GIMP (Do I really need a reason? It's a great image editor)

    I have to say that Compiz does make my life more productive.

    Things that make your life easier and are fun:
    Openbox -- the world's greatest window manager
    Thunar -- especially with the custom actions
    Feh -- great light image viewer
    Notecase -- good to hold all my random thoughts and notes
    Opera -- great customisable browser
    Agave -- what matches this colour?
    Krusader -- the best twin-pane file manager
    Aptitude or apt-get -- great to install stuff; installing the Windows way feels very odd now
    Ex Falso -- great mp3 tag editor
    Skippy -- handy to switch between windows in a different way

    And for the fun-only group:
    Xstarfish -- good for when I am bored

    Re: Programs who make life easy(and cool).. post yours..

    *gnome-terminal
    *firefox (I've read it doesn't work fine for some people, but for me it works great, I've only experienced a few crashes).
    *Mercury Messenger (it's not open source but it's free. Sadly, most of my friends use the M$N protocol, so I must keep in touch with them somehow)
    *Mahjong
    *Shisen-Sho
    *Ksame

    EDIT: Oh, and I almost forget a very basic one that is absolutely necessary for me: amaroK
