A soldier have his gun, a writer have pen and sailor have his boat. A person who spends most of his time in front of a machine or computer has his tools. Everyone who uses computer to work or for entertainment has a set of tools he or she cannot live without (metaphorically ofcourse). A bond you share, like Barney and Clyde that empowers you in what you do.

So without any further jibbar-jabbar I share list of tools and software I have either purchased or use for free or manage to use trial version. Hope you can may too like them.
