Mind if I have a say on applications?

Post  Thewindblows on Wed Jul 09, 2008 12:22 am

Whatever I'm going to say it.

Best AntiVirus with real time protection
NOD32

Internet Browser(s)
Opera Internet Browser - full of features out of the box and fast. (works on just about everything)
Safari + Webkit - FAST (Works on Windows, but really made for Mac)
Firefox - Decently fast cleans up after itself memory wise, and has good extension. (Works on Windows 2000 or higher, Linux, and Mac)

Best Audio Players:
Amarok ( made for linux KDE )
Banshee ( linux GTK )
aTunes ( Linux more effects than iTunes but stablity is currently lacking )
iTunes ( windows does have afew others though, but meh.)
WinAmp

Best Video Players:
Something that plays video's no best here i tend to like Totem since it supports some neat plugins.
VLC Player is good.
K Lite Codec pack is useful for most video players since it is a giant codec installer.

Instant Messeging:
Mac (Aduim)
Linux ( GTK Pidgin, KDE Kopete )
Windows ( Trillian , Pidgin )
Of course nothing beats the native IM messenger for something, but running 5 messengers can be troublesome.

Office:
OpenOffice.org - Held down by trying to get compatibility for non standard formats (hacking a format takes lots of time.)
MS Office - Sort of...


I know of a load more applications, but i don't feel like it.
