Fisterra is a GNOME development framework for implementing business management applications or ad hoc ERPs. Fisterra 2 is comprised of fisterra-base, a mature GNOME development framework, and fisterra-distribution, a vertical solution for the retail sector, with a beta POS (Point-Of-Sale). Its CORBA middleware allows the integration of Fisterra based applications with any other free or private systems.
cpudyn controls the speed in Intel SpeedStep, Pentium 4 Mobile, and PowerPC machines with the cpufreq driver compiled in the kernel. It saves battery, lowers temperature, and can put the computer disks in standby mode if a given period has passed without any I/O operation. It works well even with journaled file systems such as Ext3, XFS, or ReiserFS.
