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.

For packages that I recommend installing through language package managers instead of distribution ones, I'll indicate it with a prefix.

Basic terminal utilities

Window manager and main graphical applications


Resources and monitoring

Misc CLI utilities

Hardware and filesystems

Media and file formats

Art production tools
