These last few months have been really wonderful in enabling me to catch up on making sure that as much of the technology that I use to be working online is indeed free and open source tools.
Here’s a table that lists all of technology that I am using for the various tasks:
|Operating System||Fedora 32 with Gnome||Android|
|Browser||Firefox, Chromium, Tor Browser, Chrome||Firefox Focus and Tor|
|VPN||OpenVPN, Tor VPN||Tor VPN|
|Video Conferencing||Jitsi (and on self managed server as well)||Jitsi|
|Video Recorder||Open Broadcast Studio and vokoScreenNG|
|Drawing tool||Draw.io, drawpile, gimp, inkscape|
|Image viewer||eog, shotwell|
|Document viewer||evince and pdfmod|
|Data analysis||Jupyter Notebook|
|Messaging||IRC, Signal, Telegram||IRC, Signal, Telegram|
|Phone Screen Casting||https://github.com/dkrivoruchko/ScreenStream|
I mention above that I run my own Jitsi.org server. Here’s the network diagram of how it is deployed.
Thanks to Andrew, I’ve also added Audacity as the go to for editing audio files. Been using it for years and has been stellar!
Very useful Harsh!
Thanks for this useful overview. About your Jitsi server setup: did you use RPMs to install the Jitsi components? If so, where did you find them?
