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. Phuzby can display a photo for each person, and can even read the telephone number out loud to help you dial it correctly. 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.

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.
SimMon is a cross platform monitoring tool which runs on almost any OS that supports the Java Virtual Machine 1.4+. Monitoring is done through the execution of existing monitoring scripts (Perl/VBS) or existing shell commands. Currently monitoring scripts are available for Solaris, Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows based systems. Network devices can be monitored via the integrated SNMPv1 scheduler.
G4L is a hard disk and partition imaging and cloning tool. The created images are optionally compressed, and they can be stored on a local hard drive or transferred to an anonymous FTP server. A drive can be cloned using the "Click'n'Clone" function. G4L supports file splitting if the local filesystem does not support writing files larger than 2GB. The included kernel supports ATA, serial-ATA, and SCSI drives. Common network cards are supported. It is packaged as a bootable CD image with an ncurses GUI for easy use.
BitRock InstallBuilder allows you to create easy-to-use multiplatform installers for Linux (x86/PPC/s390/x86_64/Itanium), Windows, Mac OS X, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Solaris (x86/Sparc), IRIX, AIX, and HP-UX applications. The generated application installers have a native look-and-feel and no external dependencies, and can be run in GUI, text, and unattended modes. In addition to self-contained installers, the installation tool is also able to generate standalone RPM packages.
