15 Lesser Known Open Source Applications

Sure, some open source projects get all the glory, like, say, Audacity or Gallery. Everyone knows about them and they’ve been downloaded 17 gazillion times. But what about the unsung heroes? Here are 15 who deserve a bit more attention. Give ‘em some love, huh?

1) SeaMonkey
Remember the old 'Mozilla Suite'? Many people who remember this browser suite have since lost track of it, once it went the way of the stand alone browser sensation. But today, the original suite remains alive and well, yet with a new name, SeaMonkey. Like the original suite, the application set provides a browser based on Firefox technology, a Thunderbird-like email client, IRC and HTML editing options. If you already use two or more of these functions, this may be a switch worth making.

2) Pentaho BI Suite
