Nall is a small status icon application that discreetly fits into the system tray. Its purpose is to spawn a list of user scripts periodically and display one line of output per script in a tooltip window. Thus, it is possible to "monitor" any kind of event that can be detected with a script. Nall does not care about the return values of the scripts it runs, but only displays their output. It is also easy to interface nall with Nagios plugins.
dhcpcd-gtk is a GTK+ monitor for dhcpcd. It uses dhcpcd-dbus to talk to dhcpcd and wpa_supplicant. At present, dhcpcd-gtk is just an application that sits in the notification area. The icon has several states, showing offline, address negotiation, and online. When attempting to negotiate an address, you get a nice animation. A notification bubble is also shown per interface state change. Future versions will have Access Point selection and dhcpcd configuration options.
Phuzby will let you search your organisation's LDAP directory (such as Active Diretory, Novell eDirectory, or OpenLDAP) for the contact details of colleagues, customers, or suppliers.

In fact, if your phone system supports TDMF tones, you can hold your handset near you PC's speaker and phuzby will dial the number for you.
The GNOME NetworkManager is a set of co-operative tools that make networking simple and straightforward. Whether wireless or wired, NetworkManager allows you to quickly move from one network to another: once a network has been configured and joined once, it can be detected and re-joined automatically at a later date. It was designed to auto-detect as much information as possible, seamlessly switches connections when necessary, and provides immediate feedback of the network state to users and applications.

Lan Core is software that lets you build a thin client network on a Windows operating system. It was originally designed to work in a server or workstation with Windows XP Professional and using the native remote desktop protocol or RDP. To this end, the Lan Core package includes: (1) the Preboot Execution Environment or PXE service, a server application used to boot the thin clients (also referred as terminals or clients) in a local area network; (2) the thin client operating system (Thin OS), an embedded system based on Linux; and (3) an interface application used to manage the PXE service and thin clients. The thin clients' boot is done through a local area network (LAN), and it is based on the Preboot Execution Environment (PXE) protocol. In order to do it, Lan Core also provides two additional services: a DHCP server and a Trivial FTP server for Windows, used to assign IP addresses and transfer boot files, respectively.
