I ran across this great website that lists 100 awesome Linux applications to help you explore the spectacular open source world of Linux. They divide the software into categories and some they even give a full review to. They also list 20 of the best Linux flavours for every user. Linux Mint get’s my vote.
They also list a number of other best of lists. They do a good job of listing 40 of the best WordPress plugins that will help you improve your site. They also list 100 of the best Chrome extensions and 50+ Firefox plugins to boost the potential of Firefox. And lastly I want to mention that they list 100 best apps to fill your Android mobile device with. Check them out at the link below.
