CYCAS is a 2D+3D CAD package for drafting and design in high quality and for creating 3D presentations and technical illustrations easily. Some of its features include an easy-to-handle user interface, special architectural elements and functions, a WYSIWYG display, printing, plotting, import and export filters, photorealistic rendering with POV-Ray, documentation and tutorials, example drawings, and an extendable 2D/3D symbols library.
fCluster is a multi-threaded client/server redundancy application for your Linux firewall solution. fCluster is designed for the production environment with features that include: dynamic firewall synchronization, support for both ipchains and netfilter, user definable polling intervals and fail-over sequence, and email notification of a system failure. It also includes a Perl administration utility that allows you to configure both the server and the client from one machine, and view the status of the local and remote machines.
JX is a full-featured C++ application framework and GUI widget library for use with the X Window System. It provides support for all facets of application development, including distributed applications, and aims to combine the best of MacOS and NeXTSTEP. It is built directly on top of Xlib and has been carefully optimized for performance.
Opera is a full-featured Internet tool, most notably a fully standard conforming Web browser. Opera includes pop-up blocking, tabbed browsing, integrated searches, and advanced functions like a password manager, mouse gestures, native Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) support, an email program, RSS newsfeeds, and IRC chat. It is designed to be fast and highly customizable.
SteelBlue is an Open Source Web application server similar to Cold Fusion. It extends HTML with tags to execute SQL commands, perform type checking on user input, loop over sections of code, and manipulate data. In addition, it has a Perl-like scripting language that can be embedded directly into the HTML for complex data manipulation. SteelBlue runs as a CGI script on Linux, UNIX variants (via gcc 2.8), and Win32. It includes native support for most popular relational databases and the embedded scripting language is extensible though a C++ API. Included in the distribution are a book about programming SteelBlue, many examples, and a full bulletin board application.
Dealing with the UNIX command line, especially in order to manipulate the file system, is one of the biggest hurdles to widespread use of Unix and Linux. System G was written to provide a simple way to access to the file system in the form of a graphical hierarchy of files and folders.
The Global File System (GFS) is a 64-bit shared disk cluster file system for Linux. GFS cluster nodes physically share the same storage by means of Fibre Channel or shared SCSI devices. The file system appears to be local on each node and GFS synchronizes file access across the cluster. GFS is fully symmetric, meaning that all nodes are equal and there is no server which may be a bottleneck or single point of failure. GFS uses read and write caching while maintaining full UNIX file system semantics. GFS supports journaling, recovery from client failures, and many other features.
