DWI, Data With Interaction, is an Object-to-Relational Mapping (ORM)-based RAD (Rapid Application Development) system for rapidly creating data-driven desktop GUI applications.

Gaby is a small personal database manager using GTK+ and GNOME (if available) for its GUI. It was designed to provide straight-forward access to the types of databases a casual user would normally use, while keeping the ability to easily create databases for other needs. It was designed with extensibility in mind and relies heavily on plug-ins.

It supports Oracle and MySql, and features a tabbed view to manager your queries, syntax highlighting, right-click updates, and a table/column browser.
Network-config is a simple and easy to use program that helps in configuring the network interfaces for Linux-based operating systems. It allows you to have multiple configurations for the same computer, and to easily configure NAT for Internet sharing. It can also be used to scan for wireless networks. It is written in Perl and uses GTK2+, but also works as a command line program.
