My last list of free desktop applications was for Windows only. Since starting to use Mac and Linux, I’m particularly interested in applications that are cross-platform (ie. they work on all Linux, Mac, Windows platforms).
Here is a collection of those applications I previously used on Windows and the alternatives on Linux and Mac.
|Category||Using on Windows
|SFTP/FTP client||Filezilla||command line
integrated into Nautilus
|Text Editing||Notepad 2||Vim||Vim||Vim is also available on Windows|
|Graphic viewer||Irfanview||Included||Included||Still looking for something
more versatile like Irfanview
|PDF writer||PDF Creator||Included||Included|
|CD Writer||WinXP builtin||Included||included|
|Manage Password||KeePass||Y||Y||KeePassX runs on Linux and Mac|
|Anti-virus||ClamWin||ClamAV||none||Using ClamAV to scan files
in portable device in Linux
There are of course more alternatives and other applications, these are some that I use on a regular basis.
Do you have something to recommend? Let me know.
