    Absolutely neccicary programs


    I'm looking for programs that you guys could not live without. Preferrably esoteric ones, not things along the lines of gcc, bash etc. I want things that are a little off the beaten track, yet are incredibly usefull.

    Or are you referring to things like LIRC, lirccd and Valgrind, that I can't live without? Or things like emacs?

    I can't live without Windows!

    j/k

    I can't think of much other than an editor (nano, mc), pop mail prog (evolution), IRC client (irssi), and network tools (nmap, netstat, ettercap). That's about all I HAVE to have. Oh...and a browser (Firebird, links).
