Kysrun starts applications, bookmarks, and opens documents by typing few key strokes. Starting applications is much faster than hunting for the requested app in menus and submenus. It has few depencies, and was originally written for the ASUS Eee PC. It was inspired by application launchers like Katapult, Launchy, or Mercury.
Cruiser places an icon in your system tray that activates a recursive menu system. The initial purpose is to allow you to browse your filesystem. Cruiser is also designed to be extended with plugins using D-Bus, so it can take on many different roles. It is possible to write plugins to provide quick access to RSS feeds, bookmarks, email, weather, stock quotes, and more.
xsysguard is a resource-friendly system monitor based on Imlib2.

Airs is a tool that can periodically check for new TV episodes online on a few of the popular Web sites. It will present to you if and when there are new episodes available.

With the integrated Web server you can point and click on the episodes and watch them in your favorite player.
im-chooser is a GUI frontend application featured with IMSettings to choose the input method you want to use. It can also disable input methods entirely on the desktop. This allows you to pick an input method and switch it on demand without restarting either your applications or your desktop.
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.
Logsmith is an extendable framework for processing and editing small text files. It can be seen as a combined (but stripped down) version of UN*X tools like awk, sed, and grep with a graphical user interface. The intent is to give users the powers such tools provide without having to train them in their use. In order to archive this goal, logsmith can easily be customized through a plugin architecture to perform the commons tasks that a specific user base might require.
xlax is an X11 input multiplexer: it sends your keyboard input from the xlax window to a group of windows simultaneously. The tool is designed for system administrators who typically have to do the same thing on several machines (or in several different directories). Windows can be added or deleted interactively, or temporarily disconnected and reconnected. xlax allows you to assign a custom string to each window (e.g. a hostname) that can be sent with a button click. An included script handles starting up and arranging windows, and allows you to set up commonly used window groupings in a config file.
