My linux tool box
This article is simply a dump of applications I’ve used or am using.
There are good videos on youtube (e.g. luke smith, distrotube) and good articles online (e.g. archwiki) so I won’t go into the details and features of each application here.
The order of applications simply shows the tendency of my personal perferences. It does not mean one is better than another. The rightmost ones are the ones I used most recently and vice versa.
The starred* ones are my favorite(s).
Here is my dotfiles.
