VariCAD is a 3D/2D CAD system for mechanical engineering. In addition to standard tools for 3D modeling and 2D drafting, the CAD system provides tools for sheet metal unbending and crash tests, libraries of standard mechanical parts (ANSI, DIN) and symbols, mechanical part calculations, and tools for working with bills of materials (BOMs) and title blocks. VariCAD supports STEP, STL, IGES, DWG, and DXF file formats.
pup is a GTK+ GUI utility for maintaining your printer. For uni-directional mode, it supports the Lexmark Optra Color 40 and 45, Lexmark Optra E310, HP 2100M, HP 4000, and HP LJ4 Plus. For bi-directional mode, it supports any PJL printer (or partially, depending on the printer). Current features include ink cartridge setup and maintainance (Lexmark Optra 40/45 only), printing of various test pages, printer status, and querying and changing of printer default settings.
The ax25-apps package contains programs for the hamradio protocol AX.25 that would be used by normal users (as opposed to network daemons). While not essential, these programs are usually installed if you want to connect to amatuer packet radio networks. Generally it is a good idea to also get the ax25-tools package so you can configure the hamradio ports. This package includes call, listen, ax25ipd and ax25rtd.
The ax25-tools package contains the tools that you need to get going with AX.25 for Linux. AX.25 is a network protocol that is used by hamradio operators across packet radio wireless links. This package contains the network tools to configure hamradio interfaces and some of the hamradio specific network daemons. In addition to programs that understand AX.25, they also work with ROSE and Net/ROM hamradio protocols.

CDDBD.sh is a shellscript speaking the CDDB Protocol version 1 without enhancements and read only. CDDBD.sh allows to query a local database on a filesystem that was filled with entries using such programs like xmcd or kscd. CDDBD.sh was developed to be used in a local or home network and not to serve a WAN.
CDfs is a file system for Linux systems that `exports' all tracks and boot images on a CD as normal files. These files can then be mounted (e.g. for ISO and boot images), copied, played (audio tracks), etc. The primary goal for developing this file system was to `unlock' information in old ISO sessions. The file system also allows you to access data on faulty multi session disks, e.g. disks with multiple single sessions instead of a multi session.
Unlimited Simulator is not a game. It's a basis to create whatever simulations you want, from games to scientific simulations. You only have to worry about physics, controls and how the world looks like. It can be at the same time a car simulator, a spaceships war game, or a scientific simulation. While you can do these things on their own, Unlimited Simulator provides the ability to do all three at once. It allows interaction of completely different kinds of clients, thus achieving unprecedent realism and complexity.
