During the course of my PhD I became somehow responsible for the IT infrastructure of a research group of more ore less thirty people which are partially performing highly demanding computational tasks. In this small page I want to summarize the tools which make everyone life much easier.
This list contains the most important tools which I use on a daily basis in Linux and which took me a while to discover (needless to mention Firefox, GIMP, or Inkscape because they show up in every top 10 linux software list). For now I just start with the ones I have in mind right now. And of course, this list does not contain the right thing for everybody but maybe there are some parts which are worth trying?
