Gorm (Graphic Object Relationship Modeller) is a GNUstep application for building user interfaces and application objects relationships. Its major features include drag-and-drop creation of GUI elements from palettes, run-time loading of additional palettes, direct on-screen manipulation of GUI elements, manipulation and examination of objects via inspectors, and creation of connections between objects using mouse. It is a clone of the former NeXTstep (currently OS X) "Interface Builder" application.
GNU Midnight Commander is a text-mode full-screen file manager. It uses a two panel interface and a subshell for command execution. It includes an internal editor with syntax highlighting and an internal viewer with support for binary files. Also included is Virtual Filesystem (VFS), that allows files on remote systems (e.g. FTP servers) and files inside archives to be manipulated like real files.
Window Maker is an X11 window manager designed to give additional integration support to the GNUstep Desktop Environment. In every way possible, it reproduces the elegant look and feel of the NeXTSTEP[tm] GUI. It is fast, feature rich, easy to configure, and easy to use. In addition, Window Maker works with GNOME and KDE, making it one of the most useful and universal window managers available.
xrick is a clone of Rick Dangerous. Written entirely in C, it relies on the Simple DirectMedia Layer library and has been ported to Linux (its primary target). Way before Lara Croft, back in the 1980's and early 1990's, Rick Dangerous was the Indiana Jones of computer games, running away from rolling rocks and avoiding traps in places from South America to a futuristic missile base via Egypt and the Schwarzendumpf castle.
KNOPPIX is a bootable CD with a collection of GNU/Linux software, automatic hardware detection, and support for many graphics cards, sound cards, SCSI devices, and other peripherals. It can be used as a Linux demo, educational CD, rescue system, etc. It is not necessary to install anything on a hard disk due to on-the-fly decompression.
Oinkmaster is a tool that will help you update and manage your Snort rules. It will work on most platforms that can run Perl scripts. Oinkmaster can be used to update and manage the VRT licensed rules, the community rules, the bleeding-snort rules, and other third party rules, including your own local rules.
Preferences.app is, functionally, a clone of NeXTstep/OPENSTEP tool of the same name. Just like the original program, it's a simple application for setting preferences for the GNUstep system, with a friendly interface. The program is simple, but powerful, in that people can create new modules, called "bundles", that add new things to the program that its original developers did not think of or even intend, that don't require recompiling the main program.
The Interface Window Manager uses Objective C and the GNUstep libraries to provide strictly minimal functionality, with all additional features in bundles called IWMComponents. It uses the GNUstep defaults database for user settings such as mouse button configuration, key bindings, and initial color settings, and is optimized for use in a strictly GNUstep environment.
The OpenPGP Public Key Server allows users to store and lookup PGP/GPG public keys from the server's database. Additionally, it can synchronize with other servers to make a distributed, replicated database of public keys. This package provides only the server side. The client side is usually an OpenPGP application (like GnuPG or PGP), although you can use a simple HTML form to allow queries from a Web page.
The GNU Hurd is the GNU project's replacement for the Unix kernel. The Hurd is a collection of servers that run on the Mach microkernel to implement file systems, network protocols, file access control, and other features that are implemented by the Unix kernel or similar kernels (such as Linux).
Open64 is a suite of optimizing compiler development tools for Intel Itanium(TM) systems running Linux. The Open64 project is the continuation of the SGI Pro64(TM) compiler suite which was released under the GNU General Public License (GPL). The Open64 compiler suite currently includes compilers for C, C++, and Fortran90/95 compilers for the IA-64 Linux ABI and API standards.
MEPIS Linux is a desktop Linux system that is also easy to configure as a dedicated server. It is designed for both personal and business purposes. It includes cutting-edge features such as a live/installation/recovery CD, automatic hardware configuration, NTFS partition resizing, ACPI power management, WiFi support, anti-aliased TrueType fonts, a personal firewall, KDE 3.1.2, and much more.
iBackup simplifies the task of backing up the system configuration files (those under /etc) for Solaris, *BSD, and Linux systems. You can run it from any directory and it will, by default, save the (maybe compressed) tarball to /root. It is possible to encrypt the tarball, to upload the tarball to another host, and to run the backup automated in a cron job. You can also create a nice HTML summary of a system using the included sysconf.
netPanzer is an online multiplayer tactical warfare game designed for play across the Internet and over LAN systems. One on one games are possible via direct connect or modem. Each player has many units of different types at their disposal. The game is real-time, based on quick tactical action and unit management.
Nethack sometimes saves the level on which you die (including your stuff, what killed you, and your ghost) in a "bones file". These files get loaded into later Nethack games. If you're the only Nethack player on your system, you'll only get bones files you created yourself. With Hearse, you can automatically exchange bones files with other Nethack players. When run, it uploads any new bones files it finds on your system, then downloads any bones files the server feels like giving it.
GNUSTEP Live CD contains a lot of software for GNUstep, a free implementation of the OPENSTEP framework (which is also directly used in Mac OS X as Cocoa). It includes excellent applications for RAD (GORM and ProjectCenter). The CD is available for i486, AMD64, Apple Mac PowerPC, and Sun UltraSPARC computers.
ViewPDF is an application to view and navigate in PDF documents. It is the successor of ViewIt, which was intended to be a universal preview application for GNUstep. Now, there is Preview.app that plays the role of a preview application, and ViewPDF is focused only on PDF documents. It uses PDFKit to render PDF content.
Charmap is a powerful character map for the GNUstep environment, In addition to assisting with the process of picking characters, it displays substantial Unicode data about each character, such as the Unicode name, alias, canonical decomposition, Unicode category, and various representations. It is a useful tool for developers and linguaphiles alike.
"Super Transball 2" is the sequel of "Transball" and "Transball 2". It is inspired by Thrust-type games (and concretely in ZARA THRUSTA for the Amiga 500). In each level, the goal is to find the sphere, capture it, and carry it to the upper part of the level. The main obstacle is gravity, but many other obstacles (cannons, tanks, doors, etc.) will try to make your journey difficult.
Popup is an interactive learning aid for pairs of words. It behaves much like a stack of flashcards, but handles one-to-many and many-to-one word relationships better. It features an editor for cardstack files with support for copying and pasting groups of words, as well as drag and drop. It has two quizzes. One for memorization, and one for spelling practice.
DPHYS is aimed at creating an installer for (re-)installing many Debian Linux systems with Debian 3.1 (sarge) without having to baby-sit the interactive installer for an hours time for each machine. This program requires a network to run, as it will load all floppies (appart from the first 2) and all packages from the network. It presently can only use configuration from DHCP; static IP is not supported. The floppy images can also be obtained from the network via PXE/TFTP, avoiding any removable media.
Goonies is a fun jump n' run game. The action takes place in the sleepy seaside town of Cauldron Point, down in an area known as the Goon Docks. The Goonies are a group of local kids: Mikey, Brand, Mouth, Chunk, and Data. One day they find an old treasure map in Mikey's attic. Data figures that this must be the fabulous hidden treasure of the notorious local pirate, One-Eyed Willy. The girls, Andy and Stef, join the other Goonies and the adventure begins.
Sauerbraten (a.k.a. Cube 2) is a free multiplayer/single player first person shooter, built as a major redesign of the Cube FPS. Much like the original Cube, the aim of this game is not necessarily to produce the most features and eye candy possible, but rather to allow map/geometry editing to be done dynamically in-game, to create fun gameplay and an elegant engine.
Hex-a-hop is a puzzle game based on hexagonal tiles. There is no time limit and no real-time elements. The objective is simply to destroy all the green hexagonal tiles on each of the 100 levels. As you progress through the game, more types of tiles are introduced, which make things more difficult and interesting (hopefully).
unmass is a tool to extract game archives. It supports the following archive types: Crimson Land, Baldur's Gate 2, Civilization 4, Doom (WADs), Dune 2, Etherlords 2, Final Fantasy 7 and 8, Flashpoint, Knights of Xentar, Metal Gear Solid (DARs), Moorhuhn 2 and 3, Megaman Legends, Oni, Operation Flashpoint, Princess Maker 2, Quake 1, RollCage, Swine, Unreal Tournament umods, Virtua Fighter bitmaps, MEA exe's, and some economy file formats.
Grafx2 is a bitmap paint program that allows you to draw in more than 60 video resolutions (from 320x200 to 1024x768, including most of the standard Amiga resolutions: 320x256, 320x512, 640x256, 640x512, and more, provided your video card knows how to handle them). Its layout is not very different from the famous Deluxe Paint or Brilliance, so it will be quite easy to handle it if you know at least one of these programs.
L++ is a multiplayer Lemmings remake which lets you play Lemmings against (or in a team against) others (up to eight players over a network). It has a built-in level editor. Lemmings is a game in which you guide one to ninety-nine lemmings from an entry door to an exit. There are commands for stopper, exploder, digger, builder, parachuter, and much more.
