At first it seemed weird that I didn't want to play, but now it's becoming apparent that my passion for playing FFR is dwindling. Work has been keeping me more occupied than ever, and I've discovered other pursuits.

For now, I'd not be playing. It's been 27 days since I've last played (as of 18 Oct 2020 HKT), and I don't see myself coming back to play unless I suddenly feel an urge to get back into arrowsmashing. I'm still here though, so if you'd like to chat with me, feel free to!

For those who don't know, 'FOSS' is an acronym that stands for 'free and open-source software'.

This is the list of FOSS I would recommend to anyone using Windows. Do you have any FOSS you like that's not on this list? Feel free to let me know and comment in this random thought!

FOSS I love:
1. Open Shell: Lightweight and highly customizable replacement for the Windows system menu.
2. Notepad++: Simple text editor mainly centered around programming.
3. Firefox Nightly: The web browser I'm using right now!
4. SumatraPDF: For viewing PDFs. No editing.
5. nomacs: For displaying images.
6. musikcube: Music player.
7. VLC: Music and video player. In the process of looking for software that is purely a video player.
8. 7-Zip: For zipping and unzipping archives quickly.
9. Explorer++ (stable): Lightweight and very configurable alternative to File Explorer.

FOSS I've tried but stopped using:
1. Chromium ('open-source' Chrome): While its rendering engine is open-source, it unfortunately includes binary blobs. Might try ungoogled-chromium someday, but I'd have to build it myself, which is a big pain.
2. Explorer++ (beta): A bit faster than Explorer++ (stable), but it failed to open folders at one point, and eventually it couldn't be run in the end. It also crashed regularly and spewed large crash logs.
3. Atom and Brackets: Too heavyweight and slow; sometimes displays garbled text and lines.
4. ImageGlass: It is a very good image viewer, but I personally want something that doesn't depend on the .NET framework (i.e. an absolutely native program). The newest version of nomacs (as of 26 Sep 2020) replaced ImageGlass for me.

FOSS I'm looking forward to find a replacement for:
1. VLC: It works right out of the box, but it's a bit too bloated for me. I prefer to find a program that just plays videos and does nothing more than that.
2. Visual Studio Code: Extremely handy tool for programming, but it's waaaaay too heavy for me (this is an opinion you're gonna hear from me consistently). There has to be something more lightweight but just as functional as VSC out there...

FOSS suggestions from others:
1. ShareX: Take screenshots and share them with just a few clicks.
2. CPU-X: Gathers information on computer hardware. (Original suggestion: CPU-Z)
3. Open Hardware Monitor: Monitors your hardware and displays information such as fan speed and CPU temperature.
4. Etterna: Rhythm game oriented around 4k keyboard playing.
5. Stepmania: 4k rhythm game.
6. RuneLite: Old-school RuneScape client.
7. AutoEq: Automatic headphone equalizer.
8. OpenRCT2: RollerCoaster Tycoon 2, but it's open-source and includes online multiplayer, fast-forwarding and so much more.
9. qBittorrent: Open-source BitTorrent client.
10. NeoVim: Code editor with a big emphasis on doing everything with the keyboard. High learning curve, but would be very useful to learn. (Original suggestions: Vim and Geany)
11. Jupyter: Share live documents and code with everyone.
12. Cygwin: Compile and run Unix and Linux programs on Windows without modifying their code too much.
13. Git Bash: Run git commands in Windows as if you're in a Linux distro.
