This repository lists the tools that I would use to setup a computer, the tool will be for one of the following: (w)indows, (m)ac, (l)inux or (b)rowser.
Note that my software selection is motivated by selecting open source and minimal software when possible (especially on linux), though I make exceptions while running windows or mac.
My preferred operating system depends on what my main goal is for the computer, for a custom built desktop computer, I generally go with windows as that let's me have the most options when it comes to games, music creation and gui programs, on low end systems or laptops prefer linux as it's lightweight and easy to setup for programming, finally I use a mac if it's given to me.
A page like this is useful when setting up a new computer, but is open to anyone who is looking for software for particular tasks, or just curious about what kind of tools I use.
If running windows be sure to remove any bloat: https://github.com/LeDragoX/Win-Debloat-Tools
