I love this game! I'm a sys admin and not so much a developer, so my
answers are going to be a little different:

Window Manager = dwm
File Manager = bash (rarely: pcmanfm)
Text Editor = vim (usually in vi mode) or nvi
Scripting = bash or perl
Calendar / Todo = wyrd
File search = find | grep
SCM = depends on the project; usually svn or git
E-Mail = various web interfaces*
Music = sansa e280
Chat = irssi + bitlbee
Terminal = sakura
Gaming = crayons + two-year-old son

* - I use web interfaces because we seem to lack a worthwhile
console-based e-mail client. mutt, alpine, cone, etc are all
travesties of overbuilt and underdesigned software -- not one of them
handles multiple imap connections in any sane manner. the closest
thing I've found to usable software is sup[1] but it's pretty
uncomfortable and buggy. I'm putting my own mua together with c and
ncurses, but again, I'm not really a dev so it's taking a while :)
