    Top Ten List of Software YOU Need in Ubuntu Linux

    I posted this little brochure on my blog of what I feel the most important applications I use in Ubuntu (aside from the pre-installed ones) are. Maybe those new to Ubuntu might find it helpful.

    Feel free to leave comments if you think I missed anything! I'm still pretty new myself, so I'm always looking for new software! Also, Digg the story up if you like it; you never can have too many Ubuntu stories hit the front page of Digg.

    You listed Nero as item #6. Why would I need it? K3B is an excellent application that does all I need better than Nero.

    Yeah, really tough call. As nice as K3B is, I do think that Nero is a bit more polished, and I seem to have a bit more success with it. Certainly, if you don't want to shell out the $30 for Nero, K3B is not going to be a disappointment.

    So you are saying that Nero is better than K3B enough to pay £15?

    I don't think so, after using both.

    In my opinion, yes, but I suppose that would depend what that amount of money was worth to you. If I was back in school again, writing this same list, K3B likely would have beat Nero out.

    I'm not sure that Azureus is the best BT client for *nix. I usually use Deluge, although KTorrent is also a nice option for KDM users. I've always found Azureus way too clunky. Also, uTorrent works quite well through Wine.

    EDIT: Also, I've always been fond of Zim for ToDo lists and organization, although BasKet and TomTom are popular choices as well.

    Beryl at #1? Admittedly, it's a very pretty window manager, but until it's stable and supported on a range of hardware, I don't think it's a "must have."

    do window managers count as apps... here we go

    #1 fluxbox... anything else is just a toy
    #2 midnight commander
    #3 rtorrent
    #4 Eterm
    #5 Conky (replace with SuperKaramba if running a kde system)
    #6 Firefox (default with ubuntu but not kubuntu, so its not a default app for me)
    #7 mplayer, mplayer plugin for mozilla, and xine-ui ( i use xine to watch videos that are on my pc, and the mplayer plugin for watching videos and listening to mp3s in firefox)
    #8 thats actually about it for programs i cant live without... i could also add to this list, CenterICQ
    #9 mpd with ncmpc
    #10 leafpad (for those times when you just dont want to deal with nano or vi

    i no longer have a need for apps like kopete, k3b and amarok since i started using more cli ncurses apps like centericq, ncmpc, and the standard command line tools for cd ripping and iso burning
