*nix tools you can't live without - Page 2

Ksh is actually more prevalent than bash, and a better shell. Wouldn't the proper term be highest common denominator?

As for vi mode editing, i would feel handicapped without it.

No. LCD it's a mathematical term to do with finding the easiest expressed fraction. It's since been used in IT and other fields to express the easiest method to target the widest range.

I hadn't heard of vi command line editing mode until today and after playing around with it for a few minutes I've already fallen in love with it.

In answer to the OPs question, *nix tools I depend upon are:
  • vi
  • cat / grep / sed / tail / etc, the usual user land.
  • OpenSSH (I use SSH for more than just remote shells; sshfs, rsync, sftp, port forwards, SOCKS proxies, etc)
  • nmap
  • tmux
  • ZFS
  • Samba (NFS goes without saying, but sometimes Windows support is needed)
  • curl
  • Apache
  • Perl
  • Golang
  • Virtualisation / OS containers (I'm actually quite happy with most solutions, though I do have my favourites)
  • Dolphin. (I know it's often quicker to use the command line, but Dolphin integrates the command line into it's GUI; so you have the best of both worlds)
  • git

And outside of productivity / et al. The following desktop / recreational stuff I run at home:
  • Subsonic
  • XBMC
  • KDE (particularly Dolphin)

SUBSONIC LOOKS AWESOME. Can it stream FLACs properly?

I regularly use it with FLACs smile.gif

It might be worth you looking into one of the Subsonic forks such as Madsonic since the latest versions of Subsonic are now subscription based (I'm an old user so I've been grandfathered in).

Didn't know that thread existed, though probably because it's from last march. Cool to see yours though. This is a different topic though anyway. VLC is one of my favorite open source programs but my daily workflow doesn't depend on it at all so it wouldn't be on the list here.

I honestly can't stand ksh. Used to admin an old HP-UX box and all it had was ksh. I loathed every second I was logged into that server. Nah I'll stick with bash.
