Notes:
A convenient way of finding all manner of things (applications, hosts to SSH to, ...) from the keyboard. Works well with XFCE.

Notes:
In terms of configuration, this is still a bit baroque. However, once running it is just a panel - nothing special. Since I use the keyboard for most things, it tends to just provide me with status.

Notes:
I ran Ubuntu for a few years but then Unity (Unilateral?) came along, so I decided to try something that just works. XFCE is fast and light - it does everything I need.

Notes:
If you're running XFCE then you might as well run their terminal too... :-)

Without X there is just text...
Bash Bash
Community rating:

Notes:
A good solid, feature-rich shell for interactive use. I try to avoid writing bash-specific scripts, though... they should be written in POSIX shell when possible!

Notes:
Solid, mature, reliable... generally you don't have to remember that it is there!

Notes:
The original operating system in an editor! :-) It can do anything you want it to... and is the model that other editors take their new features from.

Notes:
Debian testing is a great platform for an experienced developer's desktop. My Mum runs it too... ;-)

Notes:
I'm a long time user of Firefox (stability, features, plugins). When Firefox started using too much memory I looked at other options but decided to stick with Firefox.
