I personally find this list to be very useful, since it includes many applications that one would need in everyday's work/life, and many of them are not included by default with Linux. These include: web browser (Firefox, Chrome), email client (Thunderbird), office suite (OpenOffice.org), text editor (gedit), and many more. The list even provides direct links to download these applications or to directly install them in Ubuntu.

Caption Language Interface Pack
The Arabic CLIP for VS2010 is live!
I am very pleased to announce the release of Arabic Captions Language Interface Pack v. 2.0 for Visual Studio 2010. Now, we are able to help Arabic developers use the Visual Studio 2010 in their own language, and CLIP is the first step in the roadmap to have better localization solution in the future. The Arabic CLIP project has been done in close collaboration with local communities. It has been translated by جامعة الإسكندرية - كلية الهندسة - جمهورية مصر العربية (University) and reviewed by local MVPs.
The Captions Language Interface Pack is a tool that uses a tooltip caption and/or a small discrete dialog to display translations for user interface items. The user hovers with the mouse on top of the Visual Studio UI elements to see an instant translation. This release includes translations for following VS2010 components:
VS IDE, Deployment, Web Developer, VB, CSharp, VC, VSData, WPF Designer, Team Dev Debugger, Express features and help viewer.
