Hotwire is an integrated inventory system and a rapid deployment tool targeted at servicing enterprise environments. The currently supported rapid deployment technologies are Kickstart (Red Hat Linux), AutoYaST (SuSE Linux), and Preseed (Debian GNU/Linux). The hotwire server itself can be installed on any Linux platform, however. Additionally, where client machines have the python-dmidecode, func, and certmaster packages installed, hotwire is able to provide an automated inventory maintenance and dynamic updates, via funcwire, a hotwire tool.
Fing is a command line tool for network and service discovery. It provides you a complete view of any network in a very short time.

debshare.create is a hackish script used for producing .debshare files, which are basically "self-executable", monolithic archives containing several .deb packages. A .debshare file is meant to install one (or more) applications that it contains, complete with all its dependencies. This facilitates easy sharing of applications across computers using a single file, as opposed to multiple .deb packages. This idea was originally meant for Ubuntu systems, but there should be no reason why it shouldn't work on other similar distributions. Technically, a .debshare file is a bash shell script with a binary payload (a tar archive with the .deb-s) appended to it.
Novo Builder is a Debian GNU/Linux tool for creating your own up-to-date Ubuntu variants customized to include the programs, themes, and customized settings that you want. It provides a convenient interface for editing and building your very own OS in under one hour (depending on your Internet speeds). Novo is so simple that a general Linux user will produce results on their very first try, but it's also powerful enough that advanced hackers are able to make it preform tasks in the way they want with full control of the end results. One of the best features of Novo is how simple it is to share what you create, so others can use your ideas in their own projects. Novo can store any number of projects, so you can have a large collection of pre-sets that you can run. Novo is able to build an OS for i386 and amd64 (if your host uses the amd64 architecture) and is able to customize which repositories you use to build and which packages you include.
