    Linux system monitor with the compactness and usefulness of windows task manager to allow higher control and monitoring.

    Honestly, I love Rufus. It's a tiny program that makes clever use of built-in commands with Windows to make bootable USBs.

  • libtcod

    A collection of tools and algorithms for developing traditional roguelikes. Such as field-of-view, pathfinding, and a tile-based terminal emulator.

    libtcod has always been a favorite of mine. Does a lot of things to zero fanfare outside the indie roguelike scene.

  • handWavey

    A more intuitive/usable desktop control using leapmotion/ultraleap.

    Shameless self plug: handWavey is a tool that I wrote to control your computer using a leap motion controller. I've put a lot of time into making it practical for real world desktop usage as well as some underserved accessibility use-cases, and I absolutely love it. And I still have a lot more that I want to do with it. You can see handWavey in action here.
