    I think for me that would be Grafana and QEMU. Icinga2 also really high on the list

    Firefox. I use it constantly and have been using it since Mozilla milestone 18 through phoenix and up to today.

    No other project comes close to the same impact on my daily life ;)

    There might be libraries that are even more prevalent but those are not a s visible.

    Openssh :) network and access hacks are my daily driver

    Your question has been marked as primarily opinion based because its too close to a stackoverflow-related rant.

    Most of the tools I use are open source, but the one I like the most is LLVM

    Rust, definitely Rust but LLVM is a close second as it provides a backend for så many other languages.

    Make some research and learn something.

    @Fast-Nop I think you may need a bit more humility.

    I want to stop the starting feud.

    When I posted Linux, I was expecting this answer. I though it could be good to talk about this particularity.

    Linux is not an OS. It is a kernel. It is the foundation that handle all the hardware and make it available to programs thought system calls.

    It's basically all it does.

    Alone it is useless. You have to attach some userland utilities to it (like GNU which is an open source clone of the Unix userland) and then you get "GNU/Linux" which is an OS. Then you attach other stuff like a desktop, software and an installer for exakple and you get a "GNU/Linux distribution"

    Linux is not the only existing kernel. For example you can get a version of Debian using the Hurd kernel. In this case you have the same Distribution (Debian) but without any Linux inside.

    I hope it clears things up.

    @lanfiro It is *drumroll* an OS kernel. Means, part of an OS. If OS as a whole are ruled out, so are their components.

    On top of that, "Linux kernel" is the term when referring specifically to the kernel, not "Linux". That's because only douchebags say "GNU/Linux" for the aggregation.

    @Fast-Nop This is your reading of the spec. I don't share it.

    Spec was "no OS"
    Linux is not an OS.

    @Fast-Nop Let's call this a difference of semiotics and move on ? Ok ?

    Have a good day.
