    Nearly all of them are available to Ubuntu, a couple might require extra repos to be added. If you're on a different distro, then you can search for them using your package manager, or failing that, compile them from source.

    Wow, that program is neat. I do a little bit of web graphics and programs like that which can generate random-ish images are always useful.

    That's cool.

    I could make mandelbrot sets with it.

    Some hacker tools

    chntpw - Peter Nordahl's famous Offline NT Password and Registry Editor (easy) -- also available as a bootable utility
    ophcrack - Windows Password cracking tool (easy) -- also available as a LiveCD
    aircrack-ng - WEP encryption cracking suite (this one has a learning curve)

    It's quite easy to turn a thumbdrive or portable hard drive into a portable desktop environment used for entertainment and system recovery, as well as a means to gain intrusion into PC's and networks (sometimes its even necessary to do even for legitimate purposes).

    In fact that's pretty much what I did with the 120GB portable hard drive (Freeagent Go) i purchased 2 years ago. Repartitioned it with a 10GB linux partition, 1GB swap, and the remainder an NTFS storage partition. It's been the most useful tool in my computer repair arsenal (even slightly outweighting the trusty #2 phillips screwdriver)

    I'm always looking for more hacker tools that I can learn and use for practical applications.

    Some games

    Battle for Wesnoth - A turn-based strategy game with downloadable campaigns (ubuntu package name: wesnoth-all)
    PCSX - A playstation 1 emulator
    ZSNES - Super Nintendo Emulator
    vbaexpress - Gameboy Advance Emulator
    Sauerbraten - First Person Shooter
    Nexuiz - First Person Shooter
    Alien Arena - First Person Shooter
    Tremulous - First Person Shooter

    There was a roguelike (dungeon crawler) adventure game I used to have before called 'adom' though I dont know how it ranks in comparison to other roguelikes since I thats the only one I played though you die a lot the first few times you play it since theres a few rules in the game which are not so intuitive.

    Conky. I haven't found a system monitor I like more on any other OS.
