I think it's called Taurus or something like that.
I haven't used it yet, but I'm betting that one would be the most useful during the revolution.

Somebody else mentioned XBMC. XBMC is truly one of the greatest Media Center's I have ever seen. It's freakin awesome and flies like hell on my modded Xbox. Plays EVERYTHING I've thrown at it, plays all my DVDs, organizes my music library by itself, and has a kick ass XBox 360 skin. What more could you ask for?
Firefox is close behind, but it's been falling back a bit, must be that bloat.
Then, definitely Apache. Why Apache? Everything runs Apache!
Abiword kicks OOo's ass when it comes to a Word Processor, but LaTeX is usually where I stand. So, pdflatex ftw? I'd say so.
Next? I'd have to say Invision Power Boards. I'm an FLOSS junkie, but IPB is a damn well coded program. I'd admire the lead developer, Matt Mecham.
I'd like to say Blender, but if anybody's actually used Blender they'd know just how unbelievably horrible the interface is.
Irssi sure comes in great handy when there's actually people in our channel, which isn't very often. Best IRC client ever.
My life would be much harder without cd, so I'll have to mention it. Cd, you're so awesome. I love you.
I can't live without Kate. What's that? A program for GNU/Linux geeks named after a girl? Yes, how sad. But, when it comes to my needs for a text editor, I love it. Double plusgood!
And certainly not last, but also certainly not least (as this list has no real order), is Wine. Wine, wine wine. Wine really comes in handy if for some reason there's an application that doesn't have a good GNU/Linux replacement, or for those fun little apps that you just find around the Internet that you just have to try. Ever tried opening a Win32 virus in Wine? Doesn't do much anything at all, sadly.
Well..that's it for now. Carry on.
