Alpine Linux★★★★★Lightweight Linux distribution with modern capabilities and smooth package management despite its low resource requirements. Good for small cloud servers, old hardware, Raspberry Pi, etc.
DreamHost★★★★☆Rock solid web hosting with managed VPS and good support. Hosting this page right now. Cloud computing has been less stable in my experience.
FeatherPad★★★★★A lightweight, fast, stable, and capable text editor for Linux.
Jellyfin★★★★★Great for playing music across my local network, doesn't phone home to a cloud or try to upsell subscriptions.
KeePass Password Managers★★★★★KeePassXC, its browser extension, and KeePass2Android are a nice, clean set of apps to manage your passwords on your OWN desktop and mobile devices, auto-fill websites and apps, and sync over your own server or cloud provider.
Liferea★★★★☆A nice, lightweight feed reader for Linux that does the basics.
Linode★★★★★Flexible, inexpensive cloud hosting with a variety of Linux options. Rock solid so far!
Manyverse★★★★☆Takes the pain out of setting up and running SSB. Unfortunately it doesn't overcome SSB's inherent challenges of discovery, data size or multiple devices. (So far?)
NewsFlash★★★★★Clean, stable, fast, free, no-clutter and no-nonsense RSS/Atom newsfeed reader for Linux that optionally syncs with multiple services.
Thunderbird (Email and Calendar)★★★★★Stable, capable desktop email application, works well with multiple accounts including Gmail, Nextcloud, easy to set up and use but with advanced settings when you need them. FLOSS.
Wine and Crossover★★★★☆THE major compatibility tool for Windows apps on Linux or macOS, including SteamOS. And a commercial distribution with installers and support.
