Misc.
Avant-Windows-Navigator.
Avant Window Navgator (Awn) is a dock-like bar which sits at the bottom of the screen (in all its composited-goodness) tracking open windows.

Gnome-Launch-Box
Launch Box is generally an application launcher. It's very influenced by Quicksilver for Mac OSX. Remember that this is only a first release so don't get your hopes up too much. Launch Box is written for the GNOME 2.10 platform and depends on GTK+ 2.6, evolution-data-server 1.2 and gnome-menus. These are currently hard dependencies but the plan is to split out the backends into different optional backends.

Audio Player
Listen
Listen, a music management and playback for GNOME

Virtualization
VirtualBox
VirtualBox is a family of powerful x86 virtualization products for enterprise as well as home use. Not only is VirtualBox an extremely feature rich, high performance product for enterprise customers, it is also the only professional solution that is freely available as Open Source Software under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL).

Well that's practically standard with most popular distros (at least as far as I've seen).

Hehe... I'm trying to add only quality software... which reminds me, where's vi? :p Just joking of course. Yeah like pixels said, those types of things are pretty standard, you don't see me listing cat, grep etc.

Very nice collection here. I am amazed to say that even though I have used Linux on my laptop for about 3 years, there are quite a few on this list I'd never seen before (Listen, Deluge).

Good work!

Tracker
Desktop Search tool, it is a File indexer and Search tool, pretty first in my opinion and as it is based on C/C++, its better then Beagle
