ratpoison: (screen for X) tilling windows manager . No borders, no title bar, all the applications are in "fullscreen"
tmux: terminal multiplexer (`tabs' and splits). Successor of screen.
vim; a text editor
git: version control

I recomend #! (pronounced CrunchBang) for an operating system o:

His point was #! is called a shebang not a crunchbang.

Linux Mint 14 Nadia. Very good - it seems to be made for a bit better performance or for slow computers like my one. (so slow)

Either way, the operating system is called #! but pronounced CrunchBang :P
And CrunchBang is also designed with older/slower computers in mind O:

So when is it going to be called
"The Operating System formally known as #!"

Ubuntu 13.04 with Gnome 3.8 on my personal laptop. I love it, I don't care about the criticism it gets.
At work, I just use Debian with KDE and I manage a RHEL6 server. We run mostly red hat for our servers.

I use Crunchbang and have Qt Creator, Vim, Emacs, Geany, Netbeans, Eclipse, Code::Blocks, KDEvelop, nano, and a ton of other apps as I do more than program.

13.04 was released in April, 13.10 is coming out in October and is the current development version.

Ubuntu on a laptop was too much of a CPU hog, which is why I use Crunchbang now. Ubuntu, at idle on my laptop was about 20-30%, Crunchbang is 1-2% idle.
