"With so much focus on how one desktop environment
compares with another, it's easy to lose focus on what really
matters here – the applications we use each and every day.
"With this in mind, I'll highlight twenty great applications I
like to use on the GNOME desktop.
"1) Geany – Gedit, among other GTK text editors, are all
fine and dandy. But what about when you want something with a bit
more kick to it? Geany is a lightweight Integrated Development
Environment (IDE) that provides all the functions of a good text
editor, in addition to features one might find with similar
alternatives. The big features here include code folding and syntax
"2) Banshee – Officially, it's not a GNOME project, but
its roots are very close to GNOME regardless. At the end of the
day, I've been using Bashee for so long that it's simply my
preferred media player when it comes to music and podcasts. Bundled
with playlist management and the device syncing options, it's a
great option for folks such as myself -- despite the expected grief
I'll receive for including it."
