After some troubles and having enough of Windows, I switched to Ubuntu 14.04 LTS on my Lenovo X1 Carbon (2012 Edition) at the end of January 2015.
This is my collection of software and tools which I am using and which were recommended.
Some of the software I use:
- KeePass 2 + mono + Firefox Plugin
- Apache, MySQL, PHP, git, composer, n98-magerun
- Spotify test version
- Skype (love the compact design compared to the new Windows version)
- Radio Mobile with Wine (downloading from external works despite some install notes)
- CompizConfig Settings Manager (ccsm)
Thanks to my dear twitter followers, I also got the following recommendations:
- Microsoft Office + Wine (thanks Th3Z0ne). Office 2013 does not work by the way (i tried it and was looking for solutions). Office 2010 should work (did not install it yet).
- Remmina for SSH (already pre-installed, thanks Sander)
- terminator (thanks Roman): Great tool. After I got used to it, I prefer it to Remmina. I can recommend this How-To.
- shutter (Roman)
- virtualbox + vagrant + nfs sharing (Roman)
- Meld diff (Sander)
to be continued.
