"Resources" to me are the software tools I use to do my job or
to perform other functions I find useful or entertaining.
Operating Systems - the usual suspects
I use almost every mainstream OS available today. Operating
systems and bundled apps are in order of used most often.
(At the moment, my favorite is Windows 7, x64.)
(All of my home servers are currently 2008 R2.)
I also usually have a
command prompt or terminal
Ping, traceroute, telnet, lookupd,
and grep are your friends.
With those out of the way, I'll move onto more interesting stuff.
