One of the great things about open source is there is tons of good software out there for free, but that also makes it hard to sort through. I wanted to start a thread where people could recomend good linux software that doesn't usually come standard with distros.

I haven't really gotten outside the "stock" software, xmms, gaim, gkrellm, OpenOffice, Firefox, thunderbird, the gimp, those storts of basic stuff, but I know there is more out there. What sort of programs do you guys use and and what for?

kb3:
Great CD-Burning program, looks alot like Nero. My only beef is that with Redhat/Fedora, it doesn't come with MP3 support (and with FC2, you can't get MP3 support for it w/o rebuilding KDE).

abode acrobat:
(imho) is the best PDF reader for linux. Most of the others don't let you scroll all the way, which is inconvient (when you want a new page, you have to click a button, and get sidetracked from the story). wink.gif Only bad thing about it is that it doesn't seem to work with a scroll wheel. *shrugs*

Sound Juicer CD Ripper:
Best freeware cd-ripper I've ever seen. Fairly fast, and supports alot of formats (once again, with RH/FC it doesn't support MP3s unless you recompile KDE). Ogg, MP3, etc. Autodetects CDs (so no having to mount/umount shit every time), and has an eject option. Came with my KDE, which was pretty sweet. wink.gif
