Leetnux is a Linux distribution specifically designed for Linux users who want maximum configuratibility. Therefore, the installation is quite hard and absolutely nothing is done "automagically" as in modern Linux distributions, but the user has total control over installation and configuration.
ProjectButler is a distributed multi-user project management software, especially designed for project-oriented companies. Users can log on from everywhere over the Web or an intranet, manage projects, appointments, tasks, effort lists, customers, customer contacts, project advances, and more.
trapdoor2 allows remote users to execute local commands by sending 'magic cookies'. this can e.g. be used to alter local firewalling rules so people can connect to local services after sending the magic cookie. trapdoor2 is implemented as a high-secure HTTPS server and includes support for the Wireless Application Protocol (WAP).
tuitest is a tool to create and run automated tests of text user interfaces. It is meant as a complement to the widespread use of unit tests, and uses concepts known from GUI testing tools with the difference that it applies them specifically to text- and terminal-based user interfaces. It consists of a recorder that records the interaction with an application under tests and generates a Ruby script that replays the same interaction, optionally with the same timing. Ruby replaying is supported through a native Ruby module.
Forget WYSIWYG, forget pure HTML, the Website Meta Language is
unbeatable! Though in the beginning it's hard to understand,
you can make almost unmaintainable websites maintainable within
an hour. I converted almost all of my projects websites
to WML, and I really like it. I also found a simple way
with WML to keep website's menus up-to-date while avoiding
frames. The included Perl interpretation while compiling
the pages makes it even easier to realise things like including last
modification or compile time into a HTML page.
Leetnux is actually derived from LinuxFromScratch. I was
planning to install Linux totally from scratch on my new
system, but then I thought about the problem that I don't
have a complete development environment on a bootdisk.
So what is the most obvious thing to do? Precompile the
most important parts of the system, to get a basic
development environment that can be extended by simply
installing additional source packages. If you had tried
Leetnux (and I know, you haven't! :-), you would have
seen that actually _nothing_ is preconfigured, except the
init scripts. But even the init scripts are so simple, that
they can be remodelled completely. So you can, sometimes
you even have to, configure everything by yourself and you
will learn to know your system _really_! I've heard many
things about ROCK Linux, unfortunately I never had the
time to try it out, but what I really like is this auto-
build function, that downloads the latest packages from
the net and compiles an ISO-image of a bootable,
ready-to-install CD. But that's the point: ROCK Linux always
uses the very latest components, devfs (the /dev/hd/a1,a2,.. thing),
2.4.0-test?? kernel, etc. I want to have a stable system,
only use tested and long-used components. This is
also common in the Debian distribution, and this is
a point why Debian is so great. Though this leads to
long release times (e.g. from Slink to Potatoe 18 months),
it makes the distribution the most stable one.
