My everyday apps

My everyday apps are:

  • KWrite - for writing short text-files or scripts in the GUI
  • joe - same as KWrite, just shell-based
  • KOffice/OpenOffice - all office-related stuff, mainly spreadsheets with KSpread
  • Bluefish - for PHP-scripting and other web-related stuff
  • Konqueror - for web- and file-browsing
  • Kontact - for mail, news, etc.
  • Konsole - since I also do pretty much in shells

Some programs I use quite frequent, but not every day are:

  • Gimp - graphics-editing and sometimes buttons/banners for a website
  • Blender - to play around with some 3D from time to time
  • KStars/XEphem/Celestia/Stellarium - to make the little astronaut in me a little happy ;-)
  • Kino/Cinelerra - to record and convert video from DV-cam to DVD/VCD and other video-related stuff
  • QEmu - to test operating systems without the need of an extra hard-disc or to have Windows available for website-testing with IE
  • Kompare - in case I have to make my own patch for something

Well, I guess that should mostly cover it. Might be that I forgot something, but most of the stuff I frequently use should be here.

Ok here are mine everyday

Ok here are mine everyday apps:

  • Firefox/IceWeasel (heavy I know, but I need some extensions)
  • XChat (for IRC)
  • xfce4-terminal (terminal in X, though I've begun switching more often to plain console with ctrl-alt-f)
  • konqueror (remote file management via FTP or SSH, lately I'm using dolphin instead)
  • kate (editing those remote files, but also some local ones, mostly editing code (html, php, conf files etc))
  • mouspad or leafpad (light text editor for the rest)
  • Audacious (local music) or beep-media-player (works better for streaming radio stations (I listen to di.fm trance station)
  • Gaim (IM)
  • nano (console txt editor)
  • OpenOffice.org Writer or Calc (latter more often) for office work (mostly business tracking these days)
  • VLC primarily for occassional video playing (better than mplayer IMO though I use mplayer too).
  • gimp, inkscape for graphics work

Well most of the days I use most of the above.

Cheers

How do you run it on GNU/Linux? Afaik this is not possible, and why would one want to run it with the large number of Free Software music players, which are now starting to get plugins for things like Jamendo so you can download Free music.
