Lightbulb Interesting Programs?

All right, I see this thread getting either no attention at all or all the attention.

Everytime I look for a new program to do some task, be it an editor, audio sequencer, or even a bible, I'm surprised at the amount of programs out there. I was wondering if anyone has found a program that they think is quite useful or interesting that the rest of us may not know about?

If you use a distro based on apt-get/synaptic (Debian, Redhat, Conectiva, Jamd etc) you can "see" a lot of programs installed (or not) on your machine. It's a great way finding out programs/fun to when you are bored .
I consider Blender3D my favorite toy though:

It's a great, fast modeler of about 2.2 megas sized and has a render and a game engine included .

Well have you visited us? - we are a charity producing cost free software for the disabled, aphasia, ms... well you name it.

We're going OpenSource soon with a reprogrammed version of the beta that can be found on the site... it's a DOS version which we have had up and running under Linux, and we're launching another program by january 2004 if all goes well.

Be seing you!

Try You'll find a lot of cool KDE applications.

Sometimes I come across a cool slackware package at, but I install the package from source anyway. (but their top10 is a nice place to look for apps too)

my favorites:

audacity (audio editor), kmess (msn), mplayer (media player), tsclient (terminal service client), tightvnc (vnc), qtparted (partition manager), mldonkey/kmldonkey (file sharing), kbiff (mail notification), smb4k (samba browser), and spamassassin.
