foo2hbpl is an open source printer driver for printers that use the HBPL version 2 wire protocol for their print data, such as the Dell 1355, Fuji Xerox DocuPrint CM205, or the Xerox WorkCentre 6015. These printers are often erroneously referred to as winprinters or GDI printers. However, Microsoft GDI only mandates the API between an application and the printer driver, not the protocol on the wire between the printer driver and the printer. In fact, HBPL printers are raster printers that happen to use a very efficient wire protocol. HBPL is just one of many wire protocols that are in use today, such as Postscript, PCL, Epson, ZjStream, etc. This driver uses Ghostscript to perform all of the heavy lifting (image processing). There are five major components to the foo2hbpl printer driver: foo2hbpl2 (the page image to protocol conversion engine of the driver); foo2hbpl2-wrapper (a shell script (compatible with foomatic) that runs ghostscript and foo2hbpl in a pipeline); icc2ps (converts an ICM color profile to a Postscript CRD, which is then fed into Ghostscript before the users Postscript program); foomatic-db (foomatic database entries that describe the supported printers and their options so that printer spoolers know how to access the printer using foo2hbpl2-wrapper); and hbpldecode (a tool for developers to inspect HBPL streams).
Libporty provides a higher level API for some commonly used library functions such as sockets, date/time, file system access, background processes, and asynchronous DNS resolving. Libporty is configured using scconfig and the API is guaranteed to work the same way on all supported systems. An application that exclusively uses the libporty API will not require autotools/scconfig for porting. Libporty has been tested on Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, multiple BSD variants, Minix, OpenSolaris, and some ancient Unix systems.
Megatools is a collection of programs for accessing the Mega service from the commandline of your desktop or server. It allows you to copy individual files as well as entire directory trees to and from the cloud. You can also perform streaming downloads (for example, to preview videos and audio files) without needing to download the entire file. The tools are robust and optimized for fast operation, as fast as the Mega servers allow. Memory requirements and CPU utilization are kept at minimum. You can register an account using a "megareg" tool, with the benefit of having true control of your encryption keys.
PeerProject is a versatile peer-to-peer filesharing client and file manager. It's intuitive and aesthetic while supporting many networks and features, including BitTorrent, G2, Gnutella, eDonkey, DC++, IRC, HTTP/FTP, and more. It's a mainstream fork of Shareaza p2p, for Windows and WINE.
The X2Go Client allows you to connect to and control a remote machine running the X2Go Server. You can simulate a complete desktop session or run individual remote applications as if they were running on your local machine. The protocol is secure (via SSH) and very responsive, even over a very slow connection.

Fish Fillets NG is strictly a puzzle game. The goal in every of the seventy levels is always the same: Find a safe way out. The fish utter witty remarks about their surroundings, and the various inhabitants of their underwater realm quarrel among themselves or comment on the efforts of your fish. The whole game is accompanied by quiet, comforting music.
GNU Mach is the microkernel upon which a GNU Hurd system is based. It provides an Inter Process Communication (IPC) mechanism which the Hurd uses to define interfaces for implementing in a distributed multi-server fashion the services a traditional operating system kernel provides. Mach is particularly well-suited for SMP and network cluster techniques. Thread support is provided at the kernel level, and the kernel itself takes advantage of that. Network transparency at the IPC level makes resources of the system available across machine boundaries.
