Zentu*nix at zentu.net is an ever-evolving resource dedicated to Open-Source Software (OSS), the people who write it, and the people who benefit from its use. Aside from being the most comprehensive directory of free, open-source software on the net, some of the goals and reasons for maintaining the site here are:

    -- To bring about an increased awareness of the varieties of OSS which are available as free alternatives to proprietary software.
    -- To provide a comprehensive reference source of working open-source projects, organized by form and by function.
    -- To highlight the numerous benefits (from cost-savings to security) of using OSS over pay-per-license proprietary software.
    -- To support open-source developers by providing a neutral place within the community to showcase projects of any scale: from large, well-funded ventures to the small independent projects.
    -- To assist and educate old and new users of open-source software
    -- To contribute something of value upon which future innovations will be built. The future is wide open. The foundation upon which open-source is built can and will save the world; as has been proven, open-source conserves time, energy, resources and money by being honest and efficient.

With over 700 projects listed in the directory, varieties from every fathomable area of interest, there's sure to be a project that catches your interest. "CTRL+D" bookmarks this site which has already "bookmarked" the best FOSS sites on the web; check back often and enjoy your stay!

"Tomboy is a desktop note-taking application for Linux and Unix. Simple and easy to use, but with potential to help you organize the ideas and information you deal with every day.

Have you ever felt the frustration at not being able to locate a website you wanted to check out, or find an email you found interesting, or remember an idea about the direction of the political landscape in post-industrial Australia? Or are you one of those desperate souls with home-made, buggy, or not-quite-perfect notes systems?

" Cricket is a high performance, extremely flexible system for monitoring trends in time-series data. Cricket was expressly developed to help network managers visualize and understand the traffic on their networks, but it can be used all kinds of other jobs, as well.

Cricket has two components, a collector and a grapher. The collector runs from cron every 5 minutes (or at a different rate, if you want), and stores data into a datastructure managed by RRD Tool. Later, when you want to check on the data you have collected, you can use a web-based interface to view graphs of the data.

Note: compiling against libburn is _not_enough. You need to activate the backend through GConf editor at "/apps/brasero/config/libburn_burn and /apps/brasero/config/libburn_iso"
