    A Patch for GIMP 2.10+ for Photoshop Users

    There are several UI mods to make GIMP look and feel more like PS -- here's one of the more popular.

  • Chocolatey

    Chocolatey - the package manager for Windows

    Of course, consider that at least 95% of the time the friend you were talking about uses the console for downloading stuff might not be out of necessity, but out of preference. It's perfectly possible for the shell to be more convenient on Linux for things that can be done graphically as easy as on Windows - at some point, it's faster to open a terminal and (for example) pacman -Ss slicer, decide on Cura and sudo pacman -S cura than to look for 3D slicers in a store or browser and install the one you want that way, especially if you're a fast typer. And if I was lying here, people wouldn't use things like Chocolatey on Windows, would they?

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • FMHY


    I would never condone checking out this wiki and also doing what Empty-Size-4873 said, also avoid anything on that site with yellow next to the uploader's name, specifically IGG games is pretty inconsistent from what I've heard
