What people use andLinux for and how they like it.
I use andLinux at work, where I have to use Windows instead of my favorite Desktop Operating System. It's the one thing that keeps me sane while using Windows.
I use gnome-terminal and emacs on a daily basis. In gnome-terminal I mostly run ipython, ssh, netcat, nmap and lftp. I also sometimes use gtetrinet. ;-)
While most of these applications are available through native ports or cygwin, having them available via apt-get and in a known and proven (Linux-) environment makes me much more happy and productive.
