Request for linux modern software suggestions

Hello. I would like to ask if you can point me towards modern linux software general solutions that change the way we use linux. Like, software that aims to be different, that breaks assumptions, that let us do things in a different way. One particular example that I hope to find is a visual file manager that makes me feel pleasure while I'm taking care of my files. Anyway I'm open to any kind of software even web browsers. I'm into try different things to change radically how I use my box hoping to find ways that makes the experience more pleasant.

Sorry if I posted on the wrong forum and hugs to everybody and their families.

That's just too broad to be a question. It's also puzzling how you define better or more interesting software.
Most software does only one thing, and does that well.

Sites like,,,, even all carry interesting projects that you can dip into Try kde for eye candy. You may just want your old software with a fresh skin, theme, or icons. Nobody really knows what you want.
