StressItOut is a hardware stressing and testing program for GNU/Linux. Its main purpose is to strain the computer to ensure the hardware is in good state. There are several test modules: CPU load, memory test, 2D OpenGL painting, 3D OpenGL rendering, hard drives, optical drives, serial ports transmission, and parallel ports. Support for lm-sensors is in the works. This software, when ready for release, will mainly be aimed at the QA departments of hardware manufacturing companies, who need to ensure their newly produced machines perform correctly under heavy workloads, and that all their components work as expected.
Auralquiz is a simple music quiz game that uses your own music files. It plays short pieces of music files from your folders and presents a question and several answers about the current song. The faster the answer, the more points you receive. Up to eight people can play in a turn-based mode. In the highest difficulty level, instead of having the buttons, the player must type the answer. Symbols like "!", "-", "." etc are filtered out, and it's not case sensitive, so it's a little easier to answer correctly.
