"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 highlighting.

"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."
