"GLabels, Label, Business Card, and Postcard Printer
OpenOffice Writer has a pretty nice labels template, but Glabels is faster and easier. You can make file labels, name badges, CD and jewel case labels, business cards, address and shipping labels-- you name it, if it's an Avery label Glabels supports it. Avery labels are pretty much the de-facto standard, and it has a nice wizard for creating custom templates. The only label type it doesn't support are the little specialized roll label printers, like Brother label printers.

"Kile, Integrated Graphical LaTex Environment
I've been using Kile to write my latest book (Build A Computer Sound Studio With Audacity! No Starch Press! Coming Soon!) and it is a joy to use. I'm happy to have a publisher that doesn't require dumb icky Microsoft Word docs, and LaTex isn't hard to use when someone else writes the stylesheets; all you need to learn is the markup. Kile has syntax highlighting and lots and lots of handy pointy-clicky functions. It also permits as much manual markup and futzing as you want."
