in reply to Tools you can't live without

On my list of 'things to be installed on the new box before I can use it productively' are:
  • Firefox
  • Thunderbird
  • Vim
  • Open Office
  • Perl (or ActiveState Perl on a Windows box)
  • PuTTY (on a Windows box)

I try to get the same toolset (FF, TB, Vim, OO, Perl) on all the machines I use so I don't have to remember different command sets when I switch from the Windows laptop to the Linux desktop to the FreeBSD Servers and back in the course of twenty minutes.

I Go Back to Sleep, Now.
