<h2><a href="http://www.boost.org/">Boost</a></h2>

<p>Boost provides free peer-reviewed portable C++ source libraries.</p>

<p>Boost emphasizes libraries that work well with the C++ Standard
  Library.  Boost libraries are intended to be widely useful, and usable
  across a broad spectrum of applications.  The Boost license encourages
  both commercial and non-commercial use.</p>

<p>Boost aims to establish &ldquo;existing practice&rdquo; and provide
reference implementations so that Boost libraries are suitable for
eventual standardization. Ten Boost libraries are already included in the
C++ Standards Committee's Library Technical Report ( TR1) as a step toward
becoming part of a future C++ Standard. More Boost libraries are proposed
for the upcoming TR2.</p>

<h2><a href="http://www.busybox.net">BusyBox</a></h2>

<p>BusyBox combines tiny versions of many common UNIX utilities into a
single small executable. It provides replacements for most of the
utilities you usually find in GNU fileutils, shellutils, etc. The
utilities in BusyBox generally have fewer options than their
full-featured GNU cousins; however, the options that are included
provide the expected functionality and behave very much like their GNU
counterparts. BusyBox provides a fairly complete environment for any
small or embedded system.</p>

<p>BusyBox has been written with size-optimization and limited
resources in mind. It is also extremely modular so you can easily
include or exclude commands (or features) at compile time. This makes
it easy to customize your embedded systems. To create a working
system, just add some device nodes in /dev, a few configuration files
in /etc, and a Linux kernel.</p>


<h2><a href="http://darcs.net/">Darcs</a></h2>

<p>Darcs is a distributed revision control system written in Haskell. In
Darcs, every copy of your source code is a full repository, which allows for
full operation in a disconnected environment, and also allows anyone with
read access to a Darcs repository to easily create their own branch and
modify it with the full power of Darcs' revision control. Darcs is based on
an underlying theory of patches, which allows for safe reordering and
merging of patches even in complex scenarios. For all its power, Darcs
remains a very easy to use tool for every day use because it follows the
principle of keeping simple things simple.  Darcs is free software
licensed under the GNU GPL.</p>


<h2><a href="http://www.foresightlinux.org/">Foresight Linux</a></h2>

<p>Foresight is a desktop operating system featuring an intuitive user
interface and a showcase of the latest desktop software, giving users

<h2><a href="http://www.inkscape.org/">Inkscape</a></h2>

<p>Inkscape is an Open Source vector graphics editor, with capabilities
similar to Illustrator, Freehand, CorelDraw, or Xara X using the
open-standard Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) file format. Inkscape's
main goal is to create a powerful and convenient drawing tool fully
compliant with XML, SVG, and CSS standards.</p>

<p>In contrast to raster (bitmap) graphics editors such as Photoshop or
Gimp, Inkscape stores its graphics in a vector format. Vector graphics
is a resolution-independent description of the actual shapes and
objects that you see in the image. This description is then used to
determine how to plot each line and curve at any resolution or zoom
level.</p>

<h2><a href="http://www.jquery.com">jQuery</a></h2>

<p>jQuery is a fast and concise JavaScript Library that simplifies HTML
     document traversing, event handling, animating, and Ajax interactions

<h2><a href="http://us1.samba.org/samba/">Samba</a></h2>

<p>Samba is a FOSS suite that provides seamless file and print
services to SMB/CIFS clients, namely, to Microsoft Windows. Samba is
freely available, unlike other SMB/CIFS implementations, and allows
for interoperability between Linux/Unix servers and Windows-based
clients.  Samba is software that can be run on a platform other than
Microsoft Windows. For example, Samba runs on Unix, GNU/Linux, IBM
System 390, Solaris, Mac OS X, and OpenVMS, among others. It is
standard on virtually all distributions of GNU/Linux and is commonly
included as a basic system service on other UNIX-based systems as
well. Samba uses the TCP/IP protocol that is installed on the host
server.</p>

<p>One of the key goals of the project is to remove barriers to
interoperability. Samba is a software package that gives network
administrators flexibility and freedom in setup, configuration, choice
of systems, and equipment. Samba is released under the GPL.</p>

for developing embedded Linux systems. It is much smaller than the GNU
C Library, but nearly all applications supported by glibc also work
perfectly with uClibc. Porting applications from glibc to uClibc
typically involves just recompiling the source code. uClibc even
supports shared libraries and threading. It currently runs on standard
Linux and MMU-less (also known as uClinux) systems with support for
alpha, ARM, cris, i386, i960, h8300, m68k, mips/mipsel, PowerPC, SH,
SPARC, and v850 processors.</p>

<h2><a href="http://www.winehq.org/">Wine</a></h2>

<p>Wine is an Open Source implementation of the Windows API on top of
X and Unix.  It is a compatibility layer for running Windows
programs. Wine does not require Microsoft Windows, as it is a
completely free alternative implementation of the Windows API
consisting of 100% non-Microsoft code, however Wine can optionally use
native Windows DLLs if they are available. Wine provides both a
development toolkit for porting Windows source code to Unix as well as
a program loader, allowing many unmodified Windows programs to run on
x86-based Unixes, including Linux, FreeBSD, and Solaris</p>
