GNU/Linux Software Hall of Fame thread.




 A bit of kettle calling pot black here me thinks possibly.


Hall or Fame should be Hall of Fame.

...that knits up the raveled sleave of care,

The death of each day’s life, sore labor’s bath,
Balm of hurt minds, great nature’s second course,
Chief nourisher in life’s feast.
~W. Shakespeare - MacBeth Act 2, Scene 2

Thanks for bumping and adding to this thread, @xrobwx71.  I had completely forgotten about it and just had fun scanning the submissions starting in 2003.  Part of that fun was seeing the names of members who haven't been around for a while as well as those who continue to contribute regularly.  


The one program I use daily is OneNote.  I have numerous notebooks that are all backed up to OneDrive and accessible from my laptop as well as from my phone.  Even if you don't have a Microsoft Office subscription, you can use the web version free -- Use OneNote for the web to share notes with other people (microsoft.com).  In fact, the OneNote isn't the only free to use web version.  All you need is a Microsoft account.  See Free Microsoft Office Online | Word, Excel, PowerPoint

I was thinking about what software I used the most on my Windows machine, and outside of gaming, the majority of stuff I do these days is Cloud based apps, and almost everything else is cross-platform.


That said - the one thing I use daily, and would struggle to go without, is LastPass:



I'm sure a lot of people here use password managers, but definitely a must-have to be able to use unique secure passwords on each site, and not having to remember anything.


Other things I use pretty regularly:



- Steam

- Discord



- JetBrains Intellij suite (PhpStorm, CLion etc)



- Google Workspace (Gmail / Meet / Calendar / Docs / Sheets)

Regarding my mention of Lastpass above:

I have had a hard time getting it to work on Android. I did reach out to LP but got some canned responses.


That being said, I tried 1Password and have switched to it completely (paid versions) personal and work. The import/export from LAstpass was flawless and it works well on Android.
