I Want a Freeware Utility To ... - Update 10th Jan 2007

See my original post for more details on what this is all about.
Thanks to everybody who commented. I've used those comments to update the webpage containing the similar Linux/Unix list.
I've added a simple key to each entry:
- - no suggestions for this topic yet.
- - something suggested that I haven't personally tried yet.
- - something I've personally tried that works for me.
As you can see, there is a lot still to check out. If you've got suggestions for any of the table entries, please comment. Particular the red balled ones. I've tried to keep it simple. Suggestions for improvement are most welcome. I really didn't like hard-wiring those two purple colors everywhere. If anybody can show me how to set two color names in CSS (so that they can just be replaced via two new definitions), I'd be very appreciative.
As I run a GNOME desktop, my preference are for GNOME applications over KDE, but if KDE has best-of-breed, then I'll use that. I'm looking to expand some of the yellow entries that just say something like "shell scripting". I'm really looking for GUI applications that are easy for everybody to use, not command line incantation for just us propeller heads. Ultimately I'd like to put together a set of applications, with at least one in each category that is fully accessible.
I've still got to go through the table of equivalents / replacements / analogs of Windows software in Linux which is a huge list. That'll be in a future update.
