fpcbol is a desktop user interface written for children and people who want simplicity and speed. It is designed to be as beautiful and simple as possible. It has no menus, just icons to click. It features parental control for children. It has been tested successfully on Debian, Mandriva, and Gentoo. It works well on computers with low system resources (such as a 500Mhz Pentium). 3D acceleration is necessary for the optional transparency feature.
The goal of the General Applet Interface Library is to give programmers a simple yet powerful applet interface. This library supports wmapplet/dockapps, GNOME 2 panel applets, and ROX panel applets. The applet programmer doesn't have to care about where the applet will be used, since the library handles that. Over 50% of the code in a dockapp and a GNOME 2 Panel applet does only one thing, setting up the applet window. With GAI, this can be reduced to just a few lines of code.
Allin1 is a little dock applet for FluxBox and similar window managers. It monitors CPU load with a moving graph, memory and swap usage with histograms, battery and power status with histogram and icons, ethernet/PPP interfaces with icons and histograms (linear or logaritmic), filesystem space, and Seti@home progress.
Goodgoat Linux is a simple to use Linux distribution that can be run from a USB drive, hard drive, or CD-ROM. Rather than overwhelming users with a multitude of applications, it aims to have the best utility for each job. In addition to including the latest software, it makes it easy to share a computer's hard drive over a network.
