Voice of the Masses: What one FOSS app couldn’t you live without?

We often talk about programs missing on Linux that keep people using Windows or OS X, but how about the other way round? Imagine this nightmare scenario: you’re forced to move entirely from Linux to proprietary, closed source software, except for one program. You can keep running that one free/open source software app in your new workflow. What would it be?

We expect Vim and Emacs to come up in the answers here, but maybe there’s something more obscure that you simply couldn’t live without. We’re going to record our next podcast on Wednesday or Thursday, so let us know your indispensable FOSS app and we’ll read them out in the recording!
