On my journey on a switch from OS X to Windows 10 one of the missing bits in the daily usage was the „Quick Look“ / Preview feature in OS X. Its annoying having to double click in explorer lists, just to see whats in the file.
Throwing in seer, which does exactly that – its customizable with shortcuts and extendable via plugins (autocad, office etc.).
The office plugin isn’t the best to be honest, the natve picture, pdf etc. previes are working as expected: fast and stable.
The only thing which was sticking me to OS X was the abiltiy to use the terminal for ssh connections and native stuff.
Well, I just found mobaxterm for windows which is SO_MUCH_MORE than just a terminal, its a joke I didn’t find out earlier about it. Its a cygwin wrapper, but only roughly 20MB.
Its not only a full blown xterm, but it´s
- build in graphical sftp client which follows the terminal (!) (dragndrop)
- tabbed ssh terminal
- Lean Texteditor
- VNC client
- graphical SSH tunnel builder
- Network Scanner
- Network Packets capturing
- and much more
I have to say I am truly impressed – its a huge productivity boost for me.
Hint, if you need to find the bin folder: echo „/bin PATH = $(cygpath -w /bin)“
