Thread: Program List

    Program List

    Okay, I know you guys must be sick of seeing my username...
    Is there a resource that someone knows of that lists the Linux program names and what they do? For example, unless I hadn't seen it on GLO, I wouldn't know that Gimp was for image handling. I mean, I may have figured it out by opening it and looking at it, but this is more for programs that I have not installed yet. I would like to know what something does before installation...Thanks.

    There is a REALLY REALLY small list here. This list REALLY REALLY needs to be improved.

    You can search for Linux apps here. Some of these I am sure will be on your CD's.

    Thanks! I needed somewhere to start. I am looking at these CDs and thinking that there sure are alot of rpms on them, but I have no clue as to what the programs do. Maybe I should wipe my linux install, create larger partitions and just install them all...wouldn't that be a waste of hard drive space!
