Mac Mini as my main work machine and a macbook pro when I need mobility.
It’s a pleasure to work with Mac OS X and the main reason: it doesn’t bother me with many issues that I used to deal with other operating systems. After 5 years using it, I feel at home.
SublimeText could be seen only as a good editor just for being a Textmate on steroids and great for many developers, but not for me. However, its vintage mode really got me, since I’ve been a Vim user for years, plus its customization and look and feel are superb.
Bash + Terminal.app. In addition, currently I’m trying iTerm2, so far, so good.
- Propane: Campfire client to work and have fun with human beings.
- iTunes: Best podcast manager that I’ve used so far. It’s a music player as well.
- Alfred: It isn’t just an application launcher, it’s my personal jack of all trades. I just type Cmd+Space (my custom hotkey for it) and with a few strokes I’m able to navigate through folders and files, send email messages, play songs and much more.
- Homebrew: package manager to make life easier for developers.
