Project listing

The Desktop Utilities project manages a wide variety of small utilities and dockapps for the Gentoo Desktop. Utilities include any small programs that make the desktop easier or more fun to use. Dockapps include similar programs that fit into the dock/slit/wharf of your desktop's wm.
