Collecting my attempts to improve at tech, art, and life

My Ubuntu Setup

Tags: linux tools

I installed Ubuntu 14.04 on a partition of my laptop today. This is not a novelty. What is unusual is the fact that today I decided to track what I installed before I felt like I had a “Minimum Viable Linux.” Turns out there was quite a bit.

Other things will be installed, of course. I’ll probably add the official Oracle JDK, Inkscape, and assorted other things. And many things will be installed via package managers for the assorted languages I play with. This list is just the core things I need to feel comfortable and ready to work.
