xbindkeys Configuring hotkeys for user defined programs. GPL Users, mainly of WindowMaker like window manager which does not support hotkeys for user defined applications by default.

It is part of FSF directory and is already part of the following distributions: Debian, Fedora, Ubuntu, Gentoo, slackware, altlinux, Linspire, freebsd, openbsd ... as can be seen from google search.

xpad Postit notes application. GPL Users, mainly of WindowMaker. Some Window managers do not have notes application by default. There are not many stable/easily compilable postit notes apps especially on windowmaker for SuSE10. I find this to be very cool, configurable, very user friendly and of course stable. This is not specific for Windowmaker but like any other app, can be made so by creating a dock icon for it. Can be easily configured with builtin hotkeys + with external hotkey programs. The program is also fault tolerant. All information is kept on the hard drive, not in memory.
xymtech latex package for intuitive chemistry drawings unkown chemical paper writers
