Hah, forgetting to put BigScreen on that list was some oversight, that's like the most popular one (afaik)!    Heck, I haven't even heard of most of these.
It's hard being the voice of reason when you're surrounded by unreasonable people.

Usually Virtual Desktop for me, although I do watch stuff on Deo when I need to mess around with the tilt and zoom etc.

Do you all really watch movies in this thing?  I tried, but after about 30 minutes it was just uncomfortable having a box strapped to your face.  It gets so uncomfortable around my eyes because I start sweating after 30 minutes or so.  I much prefer a regular monitor or TV.  I think it's cool that it simulates a movie theater, but I just hate watching tv or movies in this rift.

Yup, I do. No problems with comfort either for me personally.

Yep Whirlgig is pretty good and has that free version offered as well. The paid version is also available on the Oculus Store.
