I chose "Browser, office, and Player".
I use Firefox, LibreOffice, and VLC everyday for both personal and teaching purposes.
Let me share with you. My computer is Thinkpad, my OS is Kubuntu, my desktop is KDE, and my job is teaching and writing. I am an avid Telegram and Mastodon user -- Telegram for teaching, as a classroom, and Mastodon to communicate with you all.
I attached my #FreeSoftware poster with this message, created with Inkscape illustrator.
@ademalsasa I droped FireFox for a long time, now, thanks to Mozilla’s telemetry and whitelisting some Google trackers.
I recomend Midori, Falkon and Palemoon.
As for the poll, I have used almost exclusively Free software for many years, now. Sometimes I feel I have to open up a little, so I let some proprietary code into my devices, but they don’t last long.
I’ve not yet had LibreBoot, though.
@olamundo thanks for your experiences and recommendations! I also wish I could have Libreboot. I use ThinkPad. How about you?
@ademalsasa I… don’t.
I wish there were companies like Librem and System76 in Brasil. Unfortunately electronics are too expensive here, and hardware companies can’t even stablish
@ademalsasa Replace Telegram with Matrix/Element in the picture. Telegram is closed source (except client) and centralized product.
Tried to swotch from visual studio to vs codium without success so far: still not able to debug unit tests and i can't figure out what i'm missing
@ademalsasa As a writer, I use LibreOffice Writer the most, though I recently started learning Emacs too. Inkscape, and Gimp, for ebook covers.
For web, Firefox, Vivaldi and Brave.
mpv, for everything multimedia.
Beside Vivaldi/Brave I think I only use a single proprietary app: Antidote Druide, a French (and now English) grammar and spellchecker I have been using for >10 years, that works offline (no need to sub).
All of that on a ThinkPad & a custom build desktop both running Manjaro Xfce 😋
@ademalsasa everything but todoist, steam, obsidian, and itch.io is open source in my tool kit (disregarding proprietary blobs and firmware)
@ademalsasa I chose the first option. Firefox probably in the lead with newsboat, beets and mpv rounding things out. For work, pandoc gets used a lot. If I need YouTube I go through ytfzf and play through mpv.
@ademalsasa We do everything in OpenSource. The entire website is created and maintained with all open source apps. Our list: GIMP, Firefox, LibreOffice, Fedora (main OS), Shutter, KSnip, Peek, Telegram, uGET, GParted and more ...
@debugpoint I am very very glad to hear and share this. Thanks for sharing your valuable tools with us. Please share more it is very useful.
@ademalsasa Firefox, LibreOffice, VLC, ZIM/Joplin, Telegram, SchildiChat (Matrix Client based on Element), GIMP, RawTherapee, Darktable, Inkscape, GNOME Boxes, Flameshot, GH Desktop, JOSM, Micro, QuiteRSS, Whalebird, Scribus, Xournal++, YouPlay and so on...
@ademalsasa Firefox for web, Tootle for Mastodon, Element for communication, Tutanota for email, Nextcloud for cloud data, Lollypop for audio, and looking for an Audacity alternative.
For people who care about, support, or build Free, Libre, and Open Source Software (FLOSS).
