Following are tools I use a lot, but am not necessarily loving. There is a separate post for those.
Debian: my primary OS, and also my favorite
- wajig: I also develop and maintain it
- APT: a collection of Debian package management tools
- Emacs: I also use it as a general purpose text editor
- Git: as if I had a choice... work and open source
- Mercurial: my favorite
- Rust: this has since replaced Python as my favorite language, and I spend far more time with it than any other
- Docker: a central component of our infranstructure
- systemd: journalctl & sysmtemctl
- Quod Libet: audio player that comes with a very excellent tag editor, Ex Falso
- VLC: user interface could be a lot better
- Xfce Terminal
- Liferea: I like it, ugly and unkool as it is
- Transmission: the only torrent client I have ever used
- Nautilus: decent GUI file manager
- tmux: amazingly powerful, but I wish it had less rendering bugs
- head and tail: included in GNU coreutils suite of tools
- less: indispensable!
- OpenSSH: duh!
- autojump: makes navigating the filesystem a joy
- Fabric: I use it to build and deploy my blogs... it's some sort of replacement for shell scripting
- youtube-dl: I prefer watching videos locally, with VLC
