"Sticking with the multimedia theme, Transkode is a front end
for the highly flexible, modular command line toolset Transcode.
Transcode is one of the most versatile audio and video converting
tools available. Transcode has both a graphical and a text-only
interface and supports a vast number of formats including DV,
MPEG-2, MPEG-2 Part 2, H.264, Quicktime, AC3, and any format
included under libavcodec. Transcode can import DVDs on the fly and
record from Video4Linux devices. The problem with Transcode is that
the commands can get a bit overwhelming for the average user.
Transkode remedies this by employing a user-friendly interface that
makes the complex business of converting multimedia format files as
simple as it can be.
This is one of those brilliant little pieces of software that, once
you start using it, you won't be able to live without. Giver allows
you to easily drag and drop files to users on your network. It will
automatically detect other Giver users on your network. When you
drag a file (or multiple files) to a user (represented by an

wishes to send files. The user can accept or decline them. The only
downside to Giver (as of this writing) is that there is only a

Fedora and Mandriva with no luck. Ubuntu installation is as simple
as apt-get install giver. This application makes transferring files
literally as simple as drag and drop. A must-have for company file
