Commonly used applications (cross-platform)


These days my preferred platform is Linux.

Switching from another operating system may seem a little problematic.

One of the most common problems is availability of applications.

I prefer tools that will allow me to do the job regardless of which operating system I'm using.

Here's a list of some applications that I use most often when switching between platforms.

Task GUI Shell
Text editor Atom, Sublime Text vim
System status htop, glances
Media format conversion Handbrake ffmpeg
