Artha is a handy thesaurus based on WordNet with distinct features like global hot key look up, passive desktop notification, regular expression based search, etc. Artha may be used as a free open-source replacement/clone to the proprietary WordWeb Pro thesaurus (which is also based on WordNet) on Unix-like and Windows operating systems.
Cloonix is a Linux router and host simulation platform. It fully encapsulates application, host, and network l2 and l3 into a relatively easy-to-use simulation GUI. Network delay and loss characteristics can be configured per link. It provides support for running kvm or UML virtual machines configured into an arbitrary complex network configuration. It is possible to run a 12 router UML simulation on a small x86 host (a P4 with 512 MB RAM). 32- and 64-bit KVM machines are provided.
Conky Images Display is a program that displays the cover of the song currently playing. At the moment Rhythmbox, Amarok 1.4 and 2, and exaile are supported, but support for others is planned. It can also download missing covers. CID is fully configurable thanks to a simple configuration panel.
The primary aim of the Gtk+2 panel project is to provide a panel that reuses whatever is available (if it is not overkill) in the obvious way, such as subclassing GtkWidget instead of implementing applets, or by using a GtkBuilder file instead of defining a new format to customize the panel. This approach gives some additional advantages for free: you can use common tools in uncommon ways. Above all, you can use Glade to design your own panel. All the dependencies apart from GTK+ are (and hopefully will be) optional.
