Oh, Sir, I think that depends on your definition of 'quality (pro)'.

R and RStudio (makes me a little money)

Blender (one I intend to play with more in the future)

Texlive (central to anyone writing stuff about maths and science)

SuperCollider/GEM/puredata/Ardour/Din/jackd anyone doing sound art is using this stuff as a change from logic/reaktor on the fruity machines

bash shell - Microsoft thought it worth porting!

This is a application that is in the Debian repositories:
Scribus – Open Source Desktop Publishing
It is really nice, recently I offered to start translating a "newspaper" that is in English,
and needed to start using some kind of "desktop publisher" to put the translated text,
and the images back into a document, or documents that look like the original paper,
Just last night I tried "Scribus" for the first time, and it is great.
I could start it from the command line:
just by typing
Code: Select all
scribus

It has it's own "GUI", or can be just run directly from the command line, if one takes the time to learn the various options and commands.

The malware for Free File Sync was attached to the Windows installer by Sourceforge. This is a known problem with Sourceforge and Windows programs--so far, they've been leaving Linux apps alone.

Well that is good to know, that it does not effect linux. It is worth while though to check things before downloading them.
