All my iceweasel addons
Komodo editor for my html/css stuff
RipperX for ripping cds
Picasa for looking after all my photos

I do most of my work on remote cloud apps so don't really need too many apps on my laptop.

-gnu-pspp because my school is on the spss bus and I'd rather not use non-free software.
-matplotlib and numpy for terrific math graphics and math processing respectively.
-full html documentation for the preceding two, plus same for python, because I don't have a wireless card and I'm just learning programming so often need to refer to helpdocs.
-fvwm2. My favourite window mgr. Still trying to find the rc file to make it work as it did in SuSE 10.3. That's it, except to say I really like geany-- blows idle out of the water without being huge, slow, and overwhelming for a newbie as I find things like Eclipse are.

XFE -- the one and only File Manager in the Linux world
gPicView -- the image browser; also xNview for prior to gPicView-times' sake
xArchiver -- handles .rpm, .deb, prior to 0.5.2 had to add unRpm/unDeb package -- lately I need to add xz (for SlackWare's .txz), too; also add unace, arj, 7za
Nero -- paid for it when they released a Linux version
Opera -- paid for it when 3.60 was the latest, and used it since (sits and operates in its own folder)
Firefox -- because Opera is not keeping up with FlashPlayer (sits in its own folder)
aTerm -- for it's looks
RealPlayer 8 or 11 -- I like them (they sit and operate in ther own folder)
EasyTag
StarDict -- why Absolute is the only one who bundles it ?
gtkFind -- file search
Turma -- text search
IsoMaster -- why is it not part of Anti-X ?
MenuEditor -- to edit IceWm menu
xWmConfig
pkgTools -- sometimes, in stead of copy/paste, I install using "installpkg"; also good to have lzm2dir, mo2dir, etc, tools
startX, Xinit -- since they were left out of 8.2
SylPheed -- if wasn't part of Anti X
RoxTerm -- if wasn't part of AntiX

for no particular reason -- may be for k3b, which I find myself using more than Nero -- I make a symlink to KDE 3.54 which also sit in its own directory

Definitely Guayadeque. It's the best (IMO) full featured and highly customizable music management app that uses very little memory. I also like that it uses an SQLite back-end so that I can query it as well.

Other than that I pretty much stick to the defaults in the distro. The only non open-source software that I need is Crashplan. It's the only off-site back up service (other than Tarsnap) that I trust because everything is heavily encrypted (448 bit!) before uploading. Unfortunately it relies on JRE but it only usually eats up about 70-80 MB of ram on my system.

Oh, and Systemback (http://sourceforge.net/projects/systemback/) is nice too for creating custom LiveCDs and system snapshots.

heh, at what end of the forum did you start reading?

These days, my list is:
mc, because it can do "anything" and it works in and out of X
ssh, because my desktop is out in the garage, and it is cold out there?
tmux, just because...tmux
pastebinit, to paste "it" in a bin
build-essential because it is essential, when building?
unp, to unpack zip, tar and such., and I can not remember which letters to type after tar

After install I like to add.
w32codecs (or w64 depending on the machine)
Libdvdcss2 because I need it sometimes.
Lxdvdrip , I don't use it much , but it brings in the other needed programs I do use.
ffmpeg , to convert various files to .mp4 for television viewing.
Gimp , because I use it alot.
Icedove , because I used thunderbird for so long , and I can setup 3 email accounts quickly and together.
Brasero , because it works easily for my needs.
VLC media player for those odd videos that gnome mplayer doesn't like.
Flashplugin-nonfree , because I need it sometimes.
Java runtime , the latest version.
Icetea , for iceweasel.
I really like spacefm , so I make it the default file manager.
I use a huge hosts file which I grab from here http://hosts-file.net/?s=Download
I really hate intrusive ads and redirects when I cruise the web.
I also setup my router for opendns , 208.67.222.222 · 208.67.220.220
Mostly I like the way antix comes "out of the box" just needs a few tweaks for my own useage.
Colin
