The Great Recommended Softwares, Apps and Services List

These are tools that I’ve had with me long enough to merit my personal recommendation. Sure, times change, paradigms shift, technologies come and go. But every single one on this list comes with my highest recommendation for simply proving very useful in its time. No OS and browser battles here. Nor anything obvious like git or F-Droid.

I will try to keep this list updated. Old or defunct stuff no longer useful to me will be removed.
