    Your Favorite Ubuntu Programs

    I have just installed 9.04 (Jaunty) and I would like to know what the best programs are.

    Please list the name of the program and the terminal command if it's not in Synaptic.

    Thanks,

    You need to say "best for what"?

    I'm not really looking for anything in particular. I would like to get a feel for the Ubuntu OS and everything it has to offer.

    The types of programs I use for Windows are:
    -Audio/Video players and converters
    -Ripping and burning apps
    -Bit Torrents
    -E-mail
    -Old School video game emulators
    -Photo Shop

    Debian Testing(64bit) + XFCE4 AM2 5200+ ATI Radeon HD4350, 4gig RAM,320Gig and 750gig HDs

    what's the difference between an answer and a solution? An answer is what they want to hear, a solution is what they don't want to hear
