I know most of you already know these apps or need something more advanced but I found them interesting so I thought I might as well share it here for those not familiar with them.

WARNING: one of the apps in the list (Plexamp) doesn’t appear to be open-source so use it with caution.

      Disagree. This is one of the times where a video is appropriate to actually demonstrate what the app does.

    My top 5 linux apps are probably something like:

    1. Firefox
    2. Kate
    3. git
    4. Steam
    5. ls

    The list in the video should have been, “Here’s 5 maybe interesting apps for Linux”.

    • The video is a return to the creator’s previous “Top 5 Linux Apps” monthly series, which was popular in the past.
    • The first app highlighted is Boxy, a graphic design tool for creating SVG images and logos, with a user-friendly interface compared to more complex tools like Inkscape.
    • The second app is Eyedropper, a color picker tool that works well in Wayland environments and allows users to get color codes in various formats.
    • The third app is Iotas, a simple, GTK-based note-taking app with Nextcloud integration, focused on basic note-taking functionality without advanced features.
    • The fourth app is Plexamp, an electron-based desktop music player that provides access to the user’s Plex music library.
    • The fifth app is Sigil, a niche tool for editing metadata in eBook (EPUB) files, particularly useful for adding series information to support self-hosted ebook platforms like Calibre.
    • The creator acknowledges that Sigil has some quirks, working better in KDE than GNOME environments.
    • The creator encourages viewers to provide suggestions for future “Top 5 Linux Apps” videos in the comments.
    • The creator provides links to their social media and support platforms, including Mastodon, Odyssey, and Patreon.
    • The overall tone is one of enthusiasm for sharing useful Linux applications with the audience, while also acknowledging the niche nature of some of the recommendations.

    Wondering what these top 5 apps were, hit the link

    Wtf YouTube commercial.

    Go to hell.

    You should do better. And I should read links before I try to access them.

    Having read other comments, I don’t know or recognize any of the software listed.

    You sold me on NOT checking the video out.
