Re: what's your favourite FLOSS?
Here's a template where you can fill in your favourites; feel free to
add missing categories:
desktop OR window manager:
MySQL, although just because I know it best.
dnsmasq (does a great job integrating a DNS caching server, private
local DNS, and DHCP server, along with some other features useful for
NATed networks, into one easy-to-configure daemon)
acroread still has the best compatibility and feature set...takes a
long time to load, though.
Geez, I dunno. Whatever comes up when I choose 'Terminal' from the
KDE menu. ;)
If you mean for talking to serial devices, I usually use 'screen'.
Mythplayer, or if I'm not using that, mplayer
Firefox, or whatever reskinning of it happens to be handy.
OpenOffice.org, although I'm slowly moving towards Emacs + LaTeX for
anything longer than a page or so.
anything deserving great honours (EG. GCC):
Amarok and Konqueror have each replaced two or three other,
individual packages for me, and they deserve kudos for integrating
new functionality in ways that make intuitive sense.
Well, the program I've been booting into Windows to run most often,
lately, is Portal. ;)
