15 Relatively Unknown Linux Apps

,----[ Quote ]
| Most people go for the big apps when switching to Linux, and for good 
| reason: they are easy to find, usually very polished, often updated, and 
| there's a lot of online documentation for them. What if you're not looking 
| for the most popular, but instead the best app for you? Below are 25 
| excellent, high-quality Linux apps that go neglected far more often than 
| they should be. Some are popular amongst those who have been at the Linux 
| game for awhile, and others have become a staple of certain distros while 
| remaining relatively unknown by users of different distros. No matter the 
| reason they've sat in the midline of popularity, you can be assured that 
| these apps do what they claim to do, and they do it well.

| the Google browser which â despite Googleâs marketing power and efforts â 
| remains at the lower end of web browser distribution.

GNU/Linux Software I Use Regularly

,----[ Quote ]
| I recently received an e-mail from a friend that has started using Ubuntu. He is
| rather new when it comes to running a GNU/Linux desktop and has asked me several
| questions. One of the questions was basically what software do I use and
| recommend. This is a serious question that a lot of new users will probably want
| to know.
