Moving to Ubuntu – Replacement software

I’ve taken the plunge and moved from Windows on my Surface Pro 3 to Ubuntu, and while the migration wasn’t so bad it can be challenging to find software that does what you need on Linux when you are used to Windows/Mac OS X.

Here’s some replacement programs with instructions to install.

Note I have also included programs that do exists on Linux (some to my surprise)

Keepass
Replacement: Keepass! this was an easy one.
