Best places to get free linux software???

Can you guys recommend some good places to get free Linux software. I'm running rh9.

Also, I need the following software so if you have a package you like really well can you recommend it to me?

FTP Client
Network Scanning software
Photo Editing software like Photoshop

I agree with nephilim.... is awesome.

I personally like the CLI but I will try to include GUI apps as well.

* XChat (GUI)
* BitchX (CLI)

FTP Client
* gFTP (GUI)

Network Scanning software
* nmap (CLI) - This is the defacto network scanner IMO. You may find some apps which couple a GUI to it on freshmeat.

Photo Editing software like Photoshop

* errr... $~ ssh.
