@fatboy you need a purpose or two...or at least let people list down top 5 tools that serve their own purpose.
so let me start... :P
1. moc - music
2. zypper - i like my system up to date
3. rtorrent - i just discovered - torrents
4. youtube-dl - for downloading a lot more than youtube
5. python - when i want to quickly calculate somethings
additionally i like sakura as it doesn't need any heavy DE but doesn't suck like rxvt or xterm with no mouse selection.
while you're in CLI, try out sed.
