What I use on my computer

Last night I had to set up a new laptop to use for the week, since my laptop was going in to the shop for repairs (which, it turns out, was not necessary since the handy Genius Bar in my local Apple Store replaced my drive on the spot! *swoon*). And it’s really amazing how setting up a new computer will make you realize how much you rely on so many pieces of software and little shortcuts, that you feel like your hands are tied when faced with a different computer.

Here are the things that I realized I heavily depend on (that is, I use almost every time I touch my computer):

omg! I mean, seriously, wtf. And that’s not even the fun stuff!

    hi, its funny since a lot of the apps. that u mention are included in OS X (since 10.2.2). Now if u are setting a debian system, usually the installation is very light in apps. (or window managers, since gnome comes default, if u don’t like gnome then u are into at least a couple of hours of downloading), not to mention if u need special apps that are stored in different repositories etc… its fun! BTW nice blog
