I. system tools : GParted GParted is an industrial-strength package for creating, destroying, resizing, moving, checking and copying partitions, and the filesystems on them. This is useful for creating space for new operating systems, reorganizing disk usage, copying data residing on hard disks and mirroring one partition with another (disk imaging). gparted.sourceforge.net

II. multimedia applications : XMMS XMMS is a multimedia player for unix systems. XMMS stands for X MultiMedia System and can play media files such as MP3, MOD’s, WAV and others with the use of Input plugins. XMMS is mainly targeted at music playback, but through thirdparty plugins some rudimentary video capabilities exists, but there are much better systems other than XMMS for video support. www.xmms.org

Pdftk is a command-line tool for doing everyday things with PDF documents. www.accesspdf.com/pdftk music from Allison Crowe on music.podshow.com theme from Brand New Sin on music.podshow.com beer on this episode : Brigand
