Hamster Font Manager (HFM) helps you control the avaliability of fonts in all of the supported applications from a central place. It includes modules to support X11, Ghostscript, and TeX. A PostScript module handles PS Fonts while other fonts remain untouched by this program. It features a nice Tcl/TK GUI. For X11 configuration to work, this software has to run on the machine's own X Server.
JExpress is a Java installer builder and auto-updater. It gives you your choice of a standalone installer, including both native and cross platform installers and updaters for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and Solaris, or a Java Web Start one-click install. You create your installer quickly with your choice of a simple wizard or a powerful advanced interface, both included. You can bundle the exact JVM you want with your installer. The auto-updater gives you a continuous revenue stream after the sale. Your software is always up-to-date, so your customers have fewer problems. You also get all the features you expect in a top end installer. Your Java application becomes a native program just like any other. On Windows it's an EXE, on Mac OS X an app bundle, etc. If you need something really special, you can customize your installer by adding simple Java classes. You can even get a source license at a reasonable price.

The Linux From Scratch project is intended for Linux users who want to build their own custom Linux system. Reasons for wanting to build such a system are diverse. Perhaps you want to get into more detail as to what happens behind the scenes. Perhaps you are fed up with the bloated standard distributions. Or perhaps you don't want to rely on pre-compiled binaries out of concerns for security.
