Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"MythTV 42

"MythTV is one of Linux's real killer apps - a digital video recorder and TV-friendly media playback interface to rival Windows Media Center. It has full digital TV support, letting you pause and rewind live TV and schedule recordings based on downloadable program guides. With multiple tuner cards, you can record multiple programs at once, and with its networked design, you can put your tuners in a backend system and stream live and recorded TV to multiple frontend systems.

"CheckGmail 52

"As the name suggests, CheckGmail checks your Gmail account periodically, so you don't have to. It drops an icon into the notification tray and polls your Gmail account to check for new mail. If anything arrives, it pops up a notice and lets you preview the mail's contents, with links to open the complete mail inside Gmail in a new browser window. By default, it just checks your inbox, but you can configure it to check specific labels as well."
