We spend too much time talking about distributions and ricing and not enough discussing good GNU/Linux software.

Let's talk about useful programs that make our lifes easier and can't be (or are not generally) used on Windows.

Some recommendations for new users: https://wiki.installgentoo.com/index.php/List_of_recommended_GNU/Linux_software

>>47331557
That list you posted is full of things that are run on Windows, what's your point in looking for non-Windows software anyway?

No one actually uses desktop linux, so there's not much to recommend.

Bomi. Some anon mention it yesterday and I fell in love with it already, as I watch all of my tv shows on my computer. Had it setup the way I needed in ~10min

It's the glory of mpv sans the autism

Didn't read list, but here's a good one for those who like to do video editing and are missing more powerful tools. If your output options are fucked, you can also always re-encode with FFmpeg.

Livestreamer is a useful CLI application to watch twitch streams without the use of flash. I like it a lot!

In my personal experience, there isn't one (which really sucks).

Fcking do something useful to your PC instead of shitposting, If you need particular program or an alternative, fcking google it first.

Chromes Peppermint Flash is probably the best one right now. I believe you can also use it in Chromium as well, but it's proprietary.
>>
>>47331557
has windows wget and ffmpeg ?

Because flash is proprietary software written by Adobe that everyone decided to use. Just look at Microsoft W indows. It's very easy to be friendly with open-source software, but it's impossible to to be friendly with code you can't see.

>Asking to talk about software for a change is shitposting.

>From someone who identifies with Lain.

I guess you have a room full of computers and do "hacking" stuff.

If it's just for flash animations, Gnash. If it's for shitty websites or video players using flash, Gnash isn't going to help you.

>video players using flash

you mean all of them?

I almost never need flash.

So sad...
