Favorite Open Source Softwares

Most of the Open Source softwares are much better than their proprietary alternatives. So I prefer to look for Open software before going for any proprietary one. Also if we use such softwares, it’s our responsibility to support and promote them. I want to share my personal favorite list of open source softwares. Please share in comments if you know any other open source software which is better than the one listed below.
