SAOTrace is a suite of software designed to simulate the as-built performance of grazing-angle X-ray optics using the ray-tracing approach. It is derived from portions of the NASA OSAC (Optical Surface Analysis Code) software suite. It can model nested conical as well as flat optical designs, and includes the ability to model arbitrary support structures and baffles. It can model non-ideal multi-layer reflective coatings as well as scattering from the optical surfaces.
Lincom is a Linux distribution created by volunteers who devote part of their time making Lincom an easy-to-use operating system. Lincom does not brand or make distribution-specific any part of software included, therefore, it is easy to customize to the user's taste. Lincom is fully customizable and the compilation of software that Lincom uses to create its distribution is easily available with full documentation of what Lincom does in terms of branding or customization.
Symbiose is a WebOS, a Web desktop which is accessible from any Web browser. It works like Linux, using the same filetree, UI management, software update system, and commands (ls, cd, etc.). It offers file management (sending/downloading, basic operations, copy-and-paste, drag-and-drop, etc.), a text editor with syntax highlighting and automatic indentation, a music and video player, a word processor, an archive manager, management of system parameters (such as appearance, users, quotas, interfaces, and software sources), a software center, an updates manager similar to apt-get, FTP server, DropBox, and Google Drive mounting (with integration of these services in Symbiose storage), and more.
