yaVDR

  View Printable Version 
GNU/LinuxyaVDR is a Linux distribution focussed on Klaus Schmidingers Video Disk Recorder and based on Ubuntu 9.10 i386. Although yaVDR 0.1.x works quite well already, there are many things that are either buggy or don't work automatically yet. So we don't recommend it for productive usage in case you have no experiences in configuring VDR manually.

Clue for Linux

  View Printable Version 
GNU/Linux"Clue for linux (clue-dictionary-client) is an application for doing lookups in the dictionary files from Clue Norge ASA. The linux client itself is GPL, but the data are covered by the commercial license which you got when you bought the dictionaries from Clue Norge ASA. It's illegal to use this program with the Clue dictionaries if you do not have a license. You are not allowed to distribute the dictionaries with this program."

So if you own one or more of these dictionaries, now you can use them under Linux too. Cool!
