Software for a command-line world

Below are a list of programs that can all be used over an SSH connection with no need for an X connection.


Email:
RSS:
Web:
Text Editing:

these can be used in concert with various markup syntax such as Markdown, HTML, DocBook, LaTeX, etc to produce publishable documents; you can use packages like antiword or wordview ("wv") to convert .DOC files to a usable format.

Spreadsheet/math/calculator:
Calendar:
To-do/time management:
devtodo
TaskWarrior
TimeTracker (a simple command-line time-tracker in the spirit of many VCS tools, written by yours-truely in response to this post, and somewhat documented here)
Music/audio:
Chat:
Database:
Filesystem
Version control:
I currently use git, Mercurial, Bazaar, Subversion and RCS depending on the project context
Addressbook:
rolo
Games:
Torrents:
rtorrent
Admin:

I also find the "screen" program vital to being productive, as I can do many, many things all at the same time, each in their own window. It also allows me to disconnect and then reconnect from another machine later, resuming where I left off.
