Question = 2 ( B || !B )

Ideas.. I've seen people kill in the name of them... and die defending them. We are told to remember the idea, not the man. Because a man can fail. He can be caught, he can be killed and forgotten. But several years later... his idea can still change the world.
My favourite Software

Actually I'm posting this cause lots of people are asking me about what program should i use to do this and to do that, anyway these are my preferences they can be not the best things ever.

browser, gui: firefox. i was trying to switch to sea monkey for better performance but i found out that the difference is so small when i disable most of the extentions. I still use opera sometimes but not much.
browser, cli: lynx
mail client, rss feed: thunderbird, though it's not the best one in performance, but it's an rss feed reader too. Actually if sylpheed supported arabic it would be my best choice for sure and i would use liferea as a feed reader.
IM: gaim gaim gaim, don't hear to anyone says somethings like amsn and yahoo messenger. anyway kopete is nice if you are a KDE guy (which i'm not).
irc, gui: xchat, though i used gaim for sometime, but xchat rocks.
irc, cli: irssi
voice calls: skype.
twitter client: i used to use twitux, but actually i found that adding IM to twitter and recieving/sending the updates from gaim is much better.
downloads - gui: d4x, kget for kde
downloads - cli: wget
Google earth: google earth, i don't know what category can i put this one in.
peer to peer: amule & bittorrent

cd burner: brasero. k3b is a good option if you use KDE

text editor, cli: vim
word processor: abi word, open office
