Linux Apps that I’m Using the Most in 2018


I am writing this post because I did a fresh Linux install to my Samsung laptop and wanted to make a list of the apps that I use the most. As you all know, installing the new operating system deletes everything from your hard drive, including software. I made a backup to my personal and professional files and folders but not for applications. I want to install and place them manually. Having the list written down makes it easier for me to set up the new system. Now it’s just a matter of copying the names or typing them in search to get them all back and running.

Inkscape, GIMP, Scribus, Converseen, Birdfont, Karbon, Krita, Vectr
