    XFCE4 - Excellent WM, I love it. Everything you love about Gnome without everything you hate about Gnome.
    MPlayer/Xine - I used to be a big MPlayer fan, but I've had trouble with it lately. Xine's working great for me these days.
    XHextris - Possibly the best tetris game ever.
    Crack Attack - Possibly the best game ever (at least the most addictive - it's like crack).

    AMOR ;)

    jollyogre, I would appreciate it if you didn't list XMMS. You probably only use it for listening to pirated music.

    Actually, I have installed the WMA codec for XMMS and I can listen to my CD's that I had stupidly ripped into WMA a long time ago... Eventually I'll re-rip into a better format, but for now they are in WMA.

    www.di.fm also works beautifully with xmms.

    Nice try, dumbass :mamoru:

    Does being uneducated, and making unsupported statements suck? You should know; enlighten us how, in your humble opinion "Linux Sucks".

    I was only following the example you set...berating everyone who asks about a program you think could be usedfor illicit purposes.

    Most of those threads are "How do I rip this DVD" or they go out of their way to explain their illigal activities -- such as, "Hey, I stole all this music off kazaa, how can I share it with all my other friends' lans so they can steal it too"....

    Never yelled at anyone that was at least trying something 51% (heck, I haven't yelled at someone for somethign that it even 90%) legit.

    You know, I used XMMS for a long time, but switched to rhythmbox recently. XMMS still doesn't use GTK2, doesn't sort my music and let me search easily like rhythmbox does and doesn't hide in a little icon on my panel.

    Still a great app, but kinda outdated now IMO :dunno:

    meh. I just throw xmms, gaim, and evolution on desktop 4 and leave them running there. I then use my other desktops for the important stuff. Then I switch to 4 when I need email, im, or music.

    Yep, that's one way to do things. Kinda what I do at work actually - I always have a maximized terminal on desktop 2 and generally have Thunderbird on desktop 6. At home, though, I always have gaim, multisync, rhythmbox and xfce-calendar running, so it's nice to have them disappear into little icons so they don't clutter up my taskbar (I have tasks from all desktops visible on the taskbar so I can always see at a glance what is running). If I have a gaim conversation or something going it goes on the second monitor.
