My Unix environment

Or how I learnt to use Linux as a teenager

I started to use Linux in my high school. The first distribution I have installed was Damn Small Linux (DSL). It was a minimalistic Linux distribution of which install size was less than 100MB. I had installed it on my tiny USB stick and managed to revive an old desktop machine (Fujitsu FMV CE series, I remember) whose HDD had stopped to work. DSL allowed me to have my own machine, which felt super cool over anything when I was a teenager.

The large potion of my software stack was shaped during those days. I choose fluxbox as my window manager, because it was the de facto for systems with limited resources. Running KDE or GNOME was simply not something affordable for me back then. I learned to use Vim, because it was the one installed by default. I've actually heard about Emacs from my friend and once I considered to install it, but failed to do so because of its installation size exceeding the remaining space available (I had only 512MB storage available for the entire system. I needed to put everything including the operating system etc. there).

It was more than a decade ago, and computers have gotten significantly more powerful since then. My software stack, however, hasn't been changed much.

The following is the list of softwares I use to write this article.
