My current quick update based on actually used programs:

-Flopswap -> to check and control your SWAP space fragmentation in case you have an SD card with two swap partitions. User monitoring swap space status keeps performance high!

-Skype -> N900 is the only device on which it still works without "upgrade+agree to new policies" what's Microsoft up to, allowing it on N900 without ads, link to MS account?

-Cutetube -> downloading and watching Youtube / Dailymotion etc..

-Easy Debian -> Libreoffice when you need it. Never mind slowness during start-up that can take up to a minute. Trying to control this software on a modern touch screen phone is the much more frustrating user experience.

-MStardict

-Orechiette - sound record everything interviews meetings, internet radio etc..

-Recaller - auto record phone calls, still works for me. Orechiette has this option too but did not try it yet.

-Pierogi - > to use the IR sender for controlling TV's and stereo equipment.

-QSpot -> spotify streaming music client

-Fahrplan -> for quickly and conveniently checking train schedules in Europe

-Alarmed -> personally I use this to switch 3G to 2.5G after an hour in order to save battery and change to silent profile from 10pm to 6am and back.

-FBReader -> to read ePub formatted books

-mBarcode -> to scan barcodes for quick internet lookup

-Frontview -> excellent document scanner , designating cropping area with stylus is a joy.

-Sleeper - widget that allows the stock media player to auto mute after certain time

Also installed, more as background or when needed:

Midnight commander, Tracker Cfg, Wifieye, Xournal, Leafpad, Flappy Bird, Conky, Tor Status applet, Orientation Lock status applet, Mobile data modus status applet, Brightness status applet, Modrana.

My thanks to the developpers involved in creating and maintaining this software.

That is correct. The [M5] tag in the subject indicates that this thread is about the N900 (yes, I realize the tagging is not exactly intuitive).

Of your suggestions, Skype is on the N900 out of the box. I have no idea about the other two.

well...ste-phan...not quite ...

"-Skype -> N900 is the only device on which it still works without "upgrade+agree to new policies" what's Microsoft up to, allowing it on N900 without ads, link to MS account?"

Skype still works fine on the n8x0's...(not to yell that too loud lest the M$ demons come and take it all away... )

TeamViewer - Proprietary, but very handy VNC viewer.

+1 for Skype.
Viber - A skype-like (but more handy). [Maybe one day ]
Linphone - A VOIP app.

A tracker (if your phone gets lost or stolen).
A QR-code reader.

The "Littré" - Open-source XML dictionnary for french people.

Sybu XBMC - Remote control XBMC.
A DLNA Player.

Jamendo app - Free music.
SoundHound or Shazam - Recognize a music by singing it or recording it.
+1 for an ebook reader

That's what I'd like to use on linux phones...

I believe this thread is for which currently existing apps are deemed to be must have - there are other threads for what we'd like to see.

For me, at the moment, I'd sat anyone without Qalendar, shortcutd, Camera Lens Launcher and Phone Speaker Switcher is not getting the most out of their n900.
