Today, rather than reporting on licenses or distributions or Microsoft, I wanted to encourage a little bragging among fans of the Linux open source operating system.
What is your favorite desktop Linux application? Which provides the most value to you? Which do you use most often? Which would be hardest for you to do without?
I am asking specifically about applications, things outside the operating system. It's in applications that I think you find the value of an operating system, when you answer the question "well, what can you do with it?"
