Away from Ubuntu's defaults, I've just replaced several things in my menus for faster, thinner apps that act fairly decently:

Nautilus --> Replaced with XFCE Thunar
Gnome-Terminal --> Replaced with pterm
Gedit --> Replaced with XFCE Mousepad
Gcalctool --> Replaced with Galculator
Todo list (no app, was using gedit) --> Installed Odot
XMMS --> Replaced with BMP (Beep Media Player)

Good going! You still use GNOME or now you use Xfce window manager?

I am also using thunar, BMP and galculator, but haven't yet tried xfce mousepad, odot and pterm (hmm that sounds new to me).

I use openbox as my window manager. I think it couldn't get much ligher than that, so when memory isn't hogged by firefox, it's really snappy. Smiling

Btw, another great app that can be handy for TODO lists and notes is tomboy. It is basically a wiki for your desktop as it works like a wiki allowing you to create as many pages as you like by just creating a link, clicking on it and filling a space in a window that opens. It's awesome.
