Major Linux Application Programs
The above list contains some of the best and most popular Linux application programs. All are available for free (i.e., in a monetary sense), and most are free software (i.e., both free in a monetary sense and in that they can be used for any desired purpose, including modification and redistribution). Many of them are included in the major Linux distributions and are also available for other operating systems. The list does not include any of the hundreds of command line (i.e., all-text mode) programs that are commonly used on Linux and other Unix-like operating systems.
