    your favorite apps that people might not know about.

    so many apps on linux its easy for some good ones to get lost in the mix. share some apps that are not as well known that you like.

    ill start off with a few

    Brave browser - based on chromium from the creator of firefox. been using this as my backup browser and i like how it works. could see switching over to it after it gets a little more stable.

    nomacs - image browser. came across this last year and has some good options. so many image viewers out there but this one works the best for me. i use it over the default gnome image viewer

    corebird - gtk twitter client. very fast and lightweight. i like it better then the website because both twitter and tweetdeck work kinda slow in the browser.

    i’ve been using Linux since 1998 when I installed Debian from floppies on a HP laptop. Took two weeks to get it all working. The first real application I installed back then was MC, or Midnight Commander if you will. It is still the first application I install. It runs in a terminal which is great since it has saved my a** so many times when X breaks or I can’t get into my account I would never be without it. Even now when I really have to move a lot of files around, edit system files and troubleshoot my system, “sudo mc” is what I type. mc can do all the normal file stuff including permissions and such. It can also do nfs and ftp which comes in really handy. So even on Antergos which recently became my go-to distro the first thing I do after install is to asking pacman for good 'ol MC.

    I agree with what everyone else already supplied. I also installed the xfce4-whiskermenu-plugin package. The Whisker menu is an alternative menu for the standard Xfce menu. I just like how it looks.
