We discussed the skeleton of the setup in Part 1. This post talks of the applications and utilities that would salvage your soul and make you feel blessed of FOSS. As I am a programmer, we will strictly talk of generic development application.
- Gnome Connection Manager: If you know about “putty”, still read on. It is a Python-Glade based application that provides SSH connections to remote hosts. It gives you power of:
- Persistent database of hosts (Save once and log-in forever, without password)
- Tabbed interface
- Split your tabbed session in multiple horizontal/ vertical screens
- Thrifty with memory and CPU time
- Save screen buffer in a text file
- GVim: Very quick and lightweight editor. Use all your VIM knowledge with it!
