Bit Torrent

May 5th, 2005
A great program for P2P transferring of LARGE files. It is frequently used to distribute Linux distributions (as well as a lot of illegal content). Since this program distributes the downloads, the MORE people that are using it, the FASTER your download is. Worth a try!

An excellent, embedded database. Used by a large number of Linux projects.

LibXML2

April 21st, 2005
An excellent, free libary for handling all things XML. Provides support for just about every XML feature you can imagine.
