What Linux Programs Do You Use on a Daily Basis?

Post useful Linux based programs you find useful whether they are free or paid for.

My List:

Terminology - Terminal Emulator
Waterfox - Firefox fork
Falkon - KDE based browser
Cherrytree - Onenote type program
FreeOffice - spreadsheet, docs, and presentation program that is MUCH better than Libre office
Filezilla - for FTP and SFTP access
Steam - you better know what that is...
SMPlayer - Media player (I don't like VLC)
VMWare - Virtual Machines
PlayonLinux - Wine

Terminal - Whatever is stock. Im not picky.
Firefox - I love the sync function since I like to keep everything the same across all my platforms.
Libre Office - Basic work.
Steam - Vidya.
Lutris - Getting my windows vidya to play on linux.
Playonlinux - Getting more of my windows vidya to play on linux.
Virtual Box - I actually dont even bother with windows. I use it for specialized version of Linux that serve a single purpose like Oracle Linux.
Clementine - I wish Musicbee would make a Linux version but this one isn't bad. I dont like cloud music services, I have a huge library and still buy CDs. I rip them and meticulously organize them and Clementine makes that simple.
Teamviewer - Easier than SSH since I work with Linux, Mac, and Windows boxes.
Evernote - Notekeeping across all platforms.
Netbeans - my Java IDE of choice
Private Internet Access - My VPN of choice. Works great on linux.
Dischord - I use it mostly to find groups for CSGO but there are some communities I check in with occasionally on it. Works great on Linux.

^ Like these guys, I typically use the stuff built-in to a minimal install. Screen is something I install on every instance I build - its utility can't be argued. At work we use SecureCRT to connect to multiple SSH sessions and I'm pretty happy with it. PuTTY is my home-use choice for Windows boxes, or Terminal for MacOS. I haven't used a Linux window manager for well over a decade, but when I did FluxBox was my choice. BitchX was for IRC back when I felt social.
