rxvt-unicode is a clone of the well known terminal emulator rxvt, modified to store text in Unicode and to use locale-correct input and output. It also supports mixing multiple fonts at the same time, including Xft fonts, real transparency, and an optional embedded Perl interpreter that allows you to extend your terminal easily.
terminal_colors is a tool to display a terminal color chart for 8, 16, 88, and 256 color terminals. It provides all the functionality of the various similar scripts found around the Web with some additional bells and whistles. It automatically detects 8, 16, 88, and 256 color capabilities (via ncurses) and displays the appropriate color charts. It can display the colors as blocks or (2D) cubes, optionally with color values overlaid in int or hex values. It can show the full rgb text string as well. It can also show the display with a vertical (default) or horizontal orientation. It has the option of additional padding and supports -h --help as well. It also works as a utility for converting between 256 and 88 color values.
DIET-PC (DIskless Embedded Technology Personal Computer) is a software kit enabling IT professionals to build embedded Linux appliances based on commodity PC or Mac hardware and various commercial embedded appliances. The focus is on platform portability, OS fundamentals and developer friendliness, rather than the end-user UI. The distribution is intended primarily for desktop graphical appliances, particularly thin clients (using the X11/XDMCP, ICA, RDP, and RFB graphics protocols). Although originally a network-booting OS, DIET-PC works well with various forms of solid-state persistent storage and hence is no longer strictly "diskless". The project uses QEMU virtual machines running Debian Linux (under Windows) as self-contained development environments, and hence may also be of interest for its unusual (non-x86) QEMU accomplishments.
TN5250j is an AS400 Telnet 5250 written in Java. The emulator provides some of the more advance functions of the 5250 datastream such as edit masks, graphical windows, continued editing fields, etc. It includes a file transfer function to multiple formats such as Open Office and Excel via full SQL query statements, spool file exporting to text or PDF, the ability to email after transfer or export, scripting in Python via the jython language, and more.
Spinner is useful for keeping telnet and ssh links from dropping due to inactivity. Many firewalls and some ISPs drop connections when they are perceived as idle. By having spinner running, the server is constantly sent a tiny amount of data over the link, preserving the connection. Spinner thus acts as a keep-alive. It displays a little "spinning" ASCII character in the top left corner of your terminal. It supports any terminal capable of handling VT100-style escape codes. Spinner can also function transparently by only sending null characters to the terminal. In this mode Spinner supports any terminal. It also has a mode called "Ghost in the Machine" in which you can use Spinner to write the spinner character to any TTY, not just your own.
C-frame is a specialized 2D IDE for cross-platform 'system programming' (development on Windows/Linux/UNIX). You can convert an existing plain ASCII C source file to a CFR format (displayed in an editor as frames). It has compiler support for MSVC++, gcc, and gcc for Win32. It supports GTK+, GTK+ for Win32 with MinGW, and X11 software development.
Linuxlord is a client/server architecture to enable Web-based thin client computing using Linux. Linuxlord allows you to login to your Linux desktop from everywhere via a Java applet running in your Web browser. It supports compression, making it useful even over a dialup connection.
