It uses apt-get (for RPM) for package management.
The Linux ABI is a patch to the Linux kernel that allows a linux system to run foreign binaries. It was developed as a follow-on to the iBCS/iBCS2 project for the older 2.2 kernel. It supports binaries from SCO OpenServer, SCO OpenDesktop, SCO Unix 3.x, SCO Xenix 386, SCO Xenix 286 (with userspace x286 emulation), SCO UnixWare 7, Caldera OpenUnix 8, SUN Solaris 2, System V Release 3 (SVR3), System V Release 4 (SVR4), Wyse V/386, and ISC Interactive Unix. Only the Intel i386 platform is currently supported
SimMon is a cross platform monitoring tool which runs on almost any OS that supports the Java Virtual Machine 1.4+.

cw is a non-intrusive real-time ANSI color wrapper for common Unix-based commands. It is designed to simulate the environment of the commands being executed, so that if a person types 'du', 'df', 'ping', etc. in their shell it will automatically color the output in real-time according to a definition file containing the color format desired. It has support for wildcard match coloring, tokenized coloring, headers/footers, case scenario coloring, command-line- dependent definition coloring, and includes over 50 pre- made definition files.
vp-usb-lock is a Linux kernel driver and PAM module that utilizes the PC wireless USB lock and makes it possible to use it as authentication method for your Linux box. It is easy to install, but needs access to the sources of the kernel and PAM to build correctly. It has been tested under Fedora Core 2 with a custom made 2.6.7-1.494.2.2 kernel, but it should also work with other kernel versions and distributions.
