Just curious what you use the most on MX. Which apps do you use most on MX?

For myself, of course the browser (Chrome), but also LibreOffice, file manager, photos, Pithos for music. Those are among my top applications.

I use most default apps provided...
They are well tested and best.
For documents and presentation:- Libre office
For file management:- Thunar
For browsing:- Firefox
For image editing :- GIMP
For vector design :- Inkscape
For media and video :- VLC
For music :- Clamentine
Default Image viewer is great for all format support along with many good fast editing options.

MX and it's software selection is very good for me and I install additional gimp full, Inkscape and shotcut after installing MX.

I used to use Double Commander too before in other distros, but find SpaceFM that little bit better and faster,
XFCE4 terminal, all normal office apps (libreOffice, Thunderbird for mail, gscan2pdf), Geany for coding, Idlepython3 ...
