makandra tech survey - results

These are the results of the "personal tech stack survey". I've included only the most popular mentions, maybe it can help you find one or two useful tools for your own usage.

Desktop environment

pie title Desktop environment "Gnome" : 16 "i3": 2 "sway": 2 "awesome": 1 "bspwm": 1 "mate": 1 "xfce": 1

Gnome dominates (unsuprising, it's the Ubuntu default), but quite a few people use tiling window managers, most popular i3 Archive and the mostly i3-compatible sway Archive .


pie title Shell "bash" : 14 "zsh": 6 "fish": 2

Again, "bash" dominates as the default.

Editors (>= 4 mentions)

pie title Editors "RubyMine" : 14 "vim": 11 "neovim": 5 "VS code": 4

Apparently emacs lost.

VIM plugins

Vim plugins are all over the place. Some multiple mentions include
