Software

I use this software on a daily basis.

Free

  • Mutt - email client that sucks less.
  • Vim - great for editing text (such as configuration files, scripts, email messages).
  • GNU Emacs - great for writing code and mark-up. This site is created with it.
  • Screen - a window manager for your terminal. Extremely useful.
  • Zsh - a powerful shell.
  • Mediawiki
  • Project Voldemort - highly available distributed storage system.

Commercial

  • Vmware - I've been a customer since ~2000. Pondering picking up Xen for non-desktop use.
  • Mac OS X - gives me a chance to use Photoshop (as well as proprietary Nikon tools) with reliability and speed while still having BSD run natively under the cover.
