Your favorite applications via apt-get?

I'm new to the world of Debian Linux, and I'm enjoying using apt-get and most recently Synaptic. I see tons of applications and I'd like to know which ones are the best before blindly downloading and installing programs that I may not like (or that I may not find useful) and end up removing.

My question is, what are your favorite applications that you've installed using apt-get?

Examples are but not limited to:
Video/audio players & converters, Image viewers/editors, CD data/audio burning apps, etc.

I'm anxious to hear from you all! :) Please list your favorite applications and their purpose which you've found via apt-get. Your answers will be most useful to me, and hopefully to other users as well. Thanks for reading! :)

Well, I use apt4rpm on Fedora, but here's my fav programs:

- Totem (Movie Player)
- XMMS (Music Player)
- TVTime (TV Viewer)
- The GIMP (Image Editing)
- Bluefish (HTML Editing)
- K3B (CD Burning)
- Audacity (Audio Editing)
- GNU Cash (Money Management)
- (Word processor, Spreadsheets, etc.)

Hope you find those programs as useful as myself
