    This ought to be interesting and possibly even helpful to you; an article elaborating on my favorite productivity software for Linux, based on the principles of stability, ease of use and efficiency, spread across ten popular categories.

  2. Hmm nice article. I didn't realize that Wine worked well enough to use stuff like Irfanview with it.

    One question, though - what formats can LyX export to?

    LyX can export to pdf, postscript, plaintext, dvi, html, cjk, opendocument, and some custom formats. I guess that's good enough :)

    I rsync my music tracks (close to 300 GB flac format) on regular basis between three networked Debian systems, and from your list I took grsync,
    Very nice

    Since I'm familiar with the command line, it wasn't hard to configure the paths and options to get the same functionality (and save the session for another day).
    Thank you very much, Mrk!

    I generally agree with your recommendations, except for those Wine programs and mildly better alternatives than what's already built-in.

    What's with the Safari theme? I would've used the default theme for screenshots to cause less confusion.
