My List of Ubiquitous Software

Posted 8/15/2019 in Reference

(Really just a list for myself when I reinstall a new computer.)

Productivity

Communication

  • Skype - but the Windows client, not the Win10 app
  • Slack - collaboration/chat client

Development

Tools & Utilities

Internet

Security

  • KeePass 2 - storing passwords securely
  • VeraCrypt - encrypted disk volumes
  • F-Secure SAFE - antivirus protection for desktop and mobile
  • mkcert - generate local certificates with a local CA

Audio

Graphics

  • Inkscape - SVG editor
  • Corel Paint Shop Pro 9 - pretty good image editor, fast, lightweight, but only version 9
  • NAPS 2 - scanner utility

Video

Servers

  • Apache/PHP - web server (links to Windows downloads)
  • MySQL - still my favorite database
  • Zabbix - server monitoring, takes a while to set up right but when it works, it's nice
  • OpenHAB 2 - IoT automation and monitoring (a real pain to set up right, but powerful when it works)
  • Bitvise SSH Server - free Windows ssh server
  • RabbitMQ - messaging platform
