Default What is your core software?
The stuff you use every day.

Ever wonder what programs people use the most? Here's mine, what about the rest of us.


zsh -> my shell

aterm -> my terminal emulator, konsoles transparency is sorely /lacking/ outside of KDE.

window maker -> my desktop quite literly you could almost say lol.

vim -> text editor slash word processor slash code editor slash web site maker

less & grep -> my pager and searcher combo

flock -> web browser (linux version), which I usually keep a running session of handy.

squirrel mail -> my mail user agent via webmail [www.ippimail.com]

latex2e/friends -> any thing I write that ain't in HTML, Plain Text, or a date with the CPU.

MPlayer -> Video and 'radio', I use konqueror when I want the plugins ;-)

Amarok -> Music collection browser and player

language of the season -> depending on whatever I'm working on I often rubber band between C, perl, python, irb, sh, etc. What ever I'm using at the moment tends to fill the gaps in between tasks.

Default Re: What is your core software?
Roughly in order of use...

Opera - web browsing & email

Amarok - music while i work (I used to use XMMS and only tried Amarok when I upgraded to 1.4, I liked it enough to use it as my main player)

Kate - Advanced text editor (mostly writing PHP scripts)

Konsole - shell, sshing in to servers, etc.

PAMP (Apache, Mysql, PHP) - debugging my PHP scripts

OpenOffice - When the pointy-haired client sends me another 5Mb Powerpoint presentation I need to look at :roll:

Konqueror - filebrowsing and FTP, though I don't like it much. It feels so bloated that the only thing it could conquer is a arthritic tortoise..

MPlayer - watching films

GIMP - occassional image edit & format converting.

I've tested for about a month the standard installation with the pbis from cd2, and it has worked fine for me. Since I have no special or recurrent needs for extra software, the base install does a pretty good job.

Besides the standard array of web browsers (Opera, Firefox, Konqueror), any text editor will do (Kwrite). Konsole is fine. For multimedia, the ones on the base install suffice (kaffeine, kmplayer, amarok).

I don't think mentioning the default FreeBSD userland has any merit. For example, OpenSSH, ee, and the standard nfs implementation are things I take for granted. The reason why PuTTY is even included in ports is beyond me (as in PuTTY is an incomplete implementation of OpenSSH). FreeBSD userland > PuTTY. To make things worse, to me, PuTTY, being read in spanish, sounds like a diminutive of the contraction of prostitute. Enough of the rant.

For the occasional odd software, portupgrade is my ally.

The PAMP bundle has proven worthy on a pair of headless local servers, no special needs there either.

Well if you use the shell regularly your core software is built into FreeBSDs userland :-)


/bin/ls any one? <--- my second most used program (after my shell)
