What I use (at the moment)

Nearly a year ago, I wrote about the applications I use on a regular basis. This was obviously on the Windows laptop I am using right now. This is going to change in a major way pretty soon, when I make the big switch to Linux.

So, I thought it would be pretty interesting to make a quick list here of the desktop apps I use on a regular basis, and then in a few weeks time I can compare back. There may be fewer changes than you might think, as I have stuck to the open-source option more often than not anyway!

Stuff I use now:

  • Openoffice.org
  • Firefox
  • Thunderbird
  • FeedDemon
  • BlogJet
  • Gaim
  • Filezilla
  • 1st Page 2000
  • The GIMP
  • Limewire
  • ITunes

…and I am bound to add more when I think of them. Of course, one type of app I am certainly going to be using a lot less of are anti-virus and -malware programs.
