Forgive me, but this is a bit of an odd question.

How do you define 'cool'? An rpm is just a program packaged for a particular system.

Could you elaborate?

So your implying software then right? Cause well, if you were in Windows, you wouldn't say, "Whats the coolest .exe you've ever downloaded?"

Thumbs up My Choices but they change often

Wow thats a hard one so many to choose from right now I am quite addicted to Flight gear....but probably the programs that I like the best they are not really fancy but just for the fuctionallaty and stuff is Mozilla Firebird cause it is very sleek and fast with great pop up blockers

Then probably the Gimp 1.3 the great peice of software with tons of features got to love it . those are the 2 right now that I get the most use out of. but like I said it is so hard to choose cause there is so many that I like but all for different reasons

Oh wait there is one more slimp3 from slimdevices.com that is a kickass free mp3 server that allows you to broadcast over the web try it out think you will like it. it has a cool web interface making it easy to setup

Maybe I should set an example: ...though it isn't in the best state, mine would probably be either Blender or WINe. ...though I'm still fighting with both. Everything else I use came on the CD.

Well it came with the distro (since redhat 7.2 all the way to fedora rc1) but without a doubt it would be iptraf.

I think RPMs are a pimple on Tux's otherwise smooth forehead.

But as far as cool software...maybe Cube. This is the only game engine I've seen where you can be playing, hit a key, and suddenly you're able to edit the map from inside.

I also really dig vim....i use that more than anything else, oh yeah...except for Fluxbox =o)

I think K3B is a great piece of software. apt-get for RH9 I find very useful for rpm dependencies.

I guess we can bring up X, can't we? Without X, most of this stuff wouldn't be possible.
