Application Usage Trends

If I had captured a snapshot of my application usage habits during each year of the last few years I think I would have discovered something like this:

  • 2005:(Windows): Photoshop, Fireworks, Dreamweaver, Firefox
  • 2006: (Windows/Linux): Fireworks, Komodo, Linux Terminal, Notepad, PHPMySQL, WAMP, Firefox (+Firebug)
  • 2007:(Windows/OS X): Fireworks, Notepad, IntelliJ IDEA, Visual Studio, Firefox (+Firebug)
  • 2008:(OS X): Fireworks, Textmate, OSX Terminal, Firefox (+Firebug)

I’ve got nothing really insightful about these pseudo-stats, it just kind of struck me as I was working that I really don’t use much of an IDE at all now.
