The most important open-source apps

eWEEK Labs has named the 18 most important open-source applications. These are applications that have helped make open-source technologies integral enterprise tools. In no particular order, here they are:

  • Apache
  • Linux Kernel
  • Nessus
  • Firefox
  • Perl
  • Wireshark
  • PHP
  • VNC
  • BSD
  • Webmin
  • Asterisk
  • Nmap
  • OpenOffice.org
  • MySQL
  • Nagios
  • Eclipse
  • Samba
  • OpenSSH and OpenSSL

I think this is a pretty comprehensive list, and there are only a few on here that I haven’t heard of before.
