|There is so much broken software out there that sometimes it can feel a bit overwhelming and depressing if you have been 'yak shaving' for hours/days/months on end.|
It's not rare to forget what you were doing after layers are layers of workarounds and fixes you have to do before actually doing the thing you wanted in the first place.
I'm wondering if people would have examples of good software they enjoy using and trust them to work properly so others can have some hope or feel better about it overall.
A similar question was asked 8 years ago ("What software makes you happy?" -- https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=128714) but I would like to focus on the reliability aspect of software.
