AbulÉdu is a Ubuntu-based distribution for primary schools. It is currently in French but most of the tools can be translated. An AbulÉdu server can handle Mac, Windows (samba), GNU/Linux and X terminal (with LTSP) clients. The server acts as a central gateway for Web, mail, and printing, and facilitates the management of classes, pupils, and teachers. Everybody can publish Web pages on an intranet using Apache and all administration tasks are performed using a browser. The result is that a teacher who is not a computer specialist can install and manage a school network.
JSqsh is a Java reimplementation of a console based (i.e. non-graphical) database query tool called sqsh. Jsqsh combines the ability to run SQL queries against any database with a JDBC driver along with much of the functionality of a Unix shell, such as piping the results of queries out to external programs (grep, more, etc.), expanding variables, redirecting output to files, command line editing, tab-completion of object names, and more.

SyncEvolution synchronizes personal information management (PIM) data like contacts, calenders, tasks, and memos via the SyncML information synchronization standard. SyncEvolution compiled for GNOME's Evolution supports all of these data items. Compiled for Nokia 770/N800/N810 Internet Tablets, Mac OS X, and the iPhone, it supports synchronizing the system address book. The command line tool 'syncevolution' (compiled separately for each of these platforms) executes the synchronization.
alph implements and analyzes historical and traditional ciphers and codes, such as polyalphabetic, substitutional, and mixed employing human-reconstructable algorithms. It provides a pipe filter interface in order to encrypt and decrypt block text to achieve transparency. The program is meant to be used in conjunction with external programs that transfer data, resulting in transparent encryption or decryption of information. The program can thus be used as a mail filter, IRC filter, IM filter, and so on.
