KDE *without* any animations or fancy-shmancy things going on, claws mail, medit, and krusader for file manager. I'd use Palemoon, but it won't work on 14.2 for unknown reasons, so I had to fall back to Seamonkey (which I prefer over Firefox, though Konqueror would be the next one I'd use over Firefox also). If I need something a lot more powerful than medit, I use Apache Open Office.

Xfce, but I use a hodgepodge of tools from Xfce, KDE, Gnome, etc.

EDIT: For mail I use Thunderbird + Enigmail.
Since the title changed to "set of tools"... I have a few additions:

I also use vim, Zim wiki, and KVM/Qemu with virt-manager.

i3wm, urxvt (urxvt also in scratchpad), chrome, transmission, deadbeef, nano or geany (about to try and learn vi). That's my everyday open programs/tools.

WindowManager: WindowMaker primary laptop and desktp, KDE (alienBob's 4.14.3 without akonadi, neomuk) occasionally on desktop to track development hoping for memory management that makes it less intense, don't need the applications or the fancy desktop effects.
eMail: Claws-Mail now for more than five years, it bites! Manages all my RSS and multiple email accounts.
browser: Pale Moon with HTTPS Everywhere, uBlock Origin, uMatrix, and User Agent Switcher, pipelight-plugins with flash and silverlight. Seamonkey is backup.
Office Suite: Apache Open Office 4.1.2 - because it is more stable, includes security fixes, and is more compatible for PDF and .doc for those who are not using ODF
File Manager: Rox Filer, Thunar, Dolphin in that order of preference when in X, otherwise I still use MC from xterm (actually sometimes when in X also. Yes it takes a little to get ROX to understand mime types, but after you set it great fun.
Scripting: BlueFish
terminal: bash
text editor: prefer eMacs with the default file backup, but sometimes it just is a pain compared to simplicity of vi.
antivirus: ESET NOD32 for Linux - best detection consistency scores for both linux and windows virus at ShadowServer.org and it is always live, even without X running.
Media: VLC (alienbobo's)
IRC: X-Chat
Image manipulation: XnviewMP
Desktop Publishing: Scribus
Finances: GNUCash
Virtualization: undecided - still playing with QEMU+AQEMU vs VMWare since my CPU is not VT-x capable.

Since this thread has been expanded to include the set of tools you use, I will mention that some recent threads here alerted me to the existence of Midnight Commander. It is a very powerful tool. I'm testing it now and am not totally sure if it will actually increase my productivity vs. the plain command line, but I think it will if used judiciously. I will say the Windows port (called mcwin32) is definitely an improvement when one has to use Windows...

In Total Commander you can create a tree of directories and subdirectories in one go:

Press F7 and type the following:
Code:
top_level_01|2nd_level_01\3rd_level_01|2nd_level_01\3rd_level_02|2nd_level_02\3rd_level_01|top_level_02
to get this:
Code:
top_level_01
  2nd_level_01
    3rd_level_01
    3rd_level_02
  2nd_level_02
    3rd_level_01
top_level_02
Total Commander is a one-man show. 25 years later there still isn't a file manager in Linux that comes anywhere near its power, despite the gulf in manpower available. The Linux desktop people have been too busy creating pretty notifications and other free desktop standards for Gnome and KDE to care about unimportant things like these.

Thanks for the info. I'll give Total Commander a try next time I have to start up the ol' Windows VM.

How this is better than mkdir? (Can be run when inside mc, if it is convenient).

Any good file manager will let you spawn a shell and run
Code:
mkdir -p top_level_0{1,2}/2nd_level_0{1,2}/3rd_level_0{1,2}
