This page kind of serves three purposes: part of my Unix tutorial track, a place to recommend stuff to more experienced Unixers, and a personal checklist for when I set up a new system. Not everything's aimed at all three.

Since I'm a FreeBSD user, I'll be calling them by their FreeBSD package names, which might be different on other systems. (And for the Unix beginers, most Linux distros probably have a lot of these preinstalled.) Except Python packages - I recommend installing those from pip, so I'll use their pip names.
