I've finally got around to dual booting Ubuntu on my computer. I've been using ubuntu though vmware at work and home. Finally I decided to give Linux another try on my home system. I used to use Slackware, but I don't have as much time as before to really dive into the system and learn it. Anyways, my main question is.. What useful/cool apps/games/tools do you install? Here's my list: Amarok [KDE based, but Ubuntu Gnome can use it..] - Music player/collection management. VLC - Video player. I got used to it from Windows. Pidgin - Messenger program Firefox OpenOffice Wine - Windows emulation. Mainly for Mame and Utorrent. Any good text editors? Free feel to suggest alternatives to my current choices as well.
