Things I use

12 Apr 2022 - 1 minutes to read

Well, today, I’d like to bring my somewhat up-to-date list of hardware and software that I use on my daily basis.

Some people on my blogroll use to do this kind of post too, and I think it’s really useful and interesting to see how they optimize their workflow or what they’re developing with the devices they have.

I’m going to separate this list in basically two parts: hardware (be it a desktop or a mobile device) and software.

Hardware
  • MacBook Pro (2018)

    • Processor: Core i5
    • RAM: 8GB
    • Storage: 128GB SSD
    • OS: MacOS (latest stable release)
  • Custom Desktop PC

    • Processor: Ryzen 5 3500
    • RAM: 16GB
    • Storage: 1TB NVMe
    • Graphics: Nvidia RTX 2060
    • OS: Dualboot of Arch and Windows 10 (Please, don’t judge me. There are still some games that I love that have no linux support)
  • Akkon 3084B (Updated on 05/26/22)

  • Samsung 27” 4K Monitor

  • iPhone 11 (2019)

    • Storage: 64GB
    • OS: Latest
  • Raspberry Pi 400 (4GB)

    • OS: Debian Latest Stable

As you can see, my devices are far from the latest state-of-the-art pieces of hardware, but they perform great for my needs, and I don’t think of replacing any of them any time soon.

Software
  • VSCode (Tried others, but I always came back)
  • Firefox (Some hardening needed, but still king for me)
  • Joplin (Great multi-platform note-taking app)
  • Signal (Definitely the best way to communicate nowadays)
  • Nextcloud (Content collaboration platform. Does somebody still use Google?)
  • Cryptomator (Encrypt your files, save it anywhere)
  • Bitwarden (Password manager)

I’m not against closed source software, however I always try to support and use foss software. Coincidentally my list is filled with foss.
