Setting up a new mac

  Though Linux continues to be my platform of choice since it keeps my chakras in balance straight outta the gate, I did setup a Mac recently. Thought I'd list my current choice of free/open source tooling to bring it somewhat closer to the power of the linux world:

  1. Menu Meters - not quite gkrellm but it will do
  2. Spectacle - Though nowhere as full featured as KDE, this little utility does help with window management via the keyboard
  3. install homebrew/cask and then the fun begins
  4. for instance, this is how ez it is to install docker
  5. nmap, vim, aws-shell, jq, etc etc are a good idea
  6. in fact, an exhaustive list is at http://braumeister.org/

enjoy! :)
