htop: Needs no introduction

Seriously, I doubt very much there are people left in the world who don’t know about htop.


Not including it would be a blasphemy though. In a very real sense, htop has everything I look for in a well built console application.

Color galore, svelte profile, clean line drawing, menus for configuration and commands.

And more customization than you can shake a stick at. Most people know htop, but not many know how deep the rabbit hole goes. Take a look at some dork’s lame post from years ago, for an idea.

I don’t need to introduce htop because it’s well done, and for that reason most everyone knows about it. The price you pay for fame, I suppose. šŸ˜‰
