| show maker written in C language and built with the 
| GTK+2 toolkit, there are some other GUIs which do the

Twinkle Softphone: Review

,----[ Quote ]
| Twinkle seems to be one of the most ambitious Linux 
| softphones.  This free open source softphone offers 
| voice communications and instant messaging using SIP 
| protocol. Twinkle is one of the most widely used SIP 
| softphones. It's popularity can be given to the fact 
| that it is available in the stable repos in the main 
| distros (Ubuntu, OpenSuse and Fedora). The VoIP 
| application uses Qt toolkit for its graphical user 
| interface. For calls Twinkle uses the session 
| Initiation Protocol (widely used for controlling 
| multimedia communication sessions such as voice calls 
| over IP). It can be used for straight IP to IP calls 
| as well as in a network using a SIP proxy to route 
| your calls and messages. Let's delve into its key 
| feature of Twinkle to find out where does it stand in 
| the queue of open source softphones.

A Free Open Source Alternative to Microsoft Visio

,----[ Quote ]
| Now let us check out DIA-  it is a 16.5 MB download 
| from Sourceforge over here. It is also available for 
| Linux and can probably be run on a Mac as well. If 
| you have experience with DIA on either operating 
| system we would love to hear from you in the 
| comments! We will be working with the Windows version 
| in this article.
| [...]
| For me this free Visio alternative is wonderful!


Record screencasts with open source Webinaria

,----[ Quote ]
| If youâve ever had to try to create a training 
| demonstration, you know how helpful a screencast can 
| be. If youâre not sure what a screencast is just 
| think of it as a video capture of you working on your 
| PC. This is an incredible educational tool that users 
| can watch to see how to do things. There are a number 
| of tools out there to do this, but only a handful of 
| them are free. Webinaria goes even further and opens 
| its source up to the users.



10 KDE Audio/Video Players

,----[ Quote ]
| SMPlayer - SMPlayer is not exactly a KDE application since it doesn't use KDE
| libraries, but it's built in Qt 4. It uses the MPlayer engine, and overall is
| one of the most powerful video players I've used. Also, I noticed MPlayer
| performs better than Xine (considering CPU resources), at least when playing
| high resolution movies.

| the end of the article. So, here goes the list...
