UNIX/Linux


  • Artix Linux

      Because Artix made Arch's repository optional a while ago, which I guess is a good thing

    Tiny toolbox of a buncha utilities

  • OpenDoas

    Simpler alternative to sudo, Because sudo is "insecure bloat"

  • maim

    For taking screenshots

  • neomutt

    Email client for the terminal

  • newsboat

    Terminal RSS/Atom feed reader

    A small, 100% statically linked linux distro. Favors simpler alternatives for tools (e.g. sbase instead of GNU coreutils)

    For basic image operations like crop, rotate, etc. Mostly use for cropping art to album covers

  • FFmpeg

    For basic video operations like cutting, transcoding, etc. Sometimes used for tagging and inserting album art to MP3 files
