I Want A Linux/Unix Utility To ... - Update 24th January 2007

Not much time to do much work on the list this week. The Menlo Park campus is ground-zero for all of the Sun Accessibility Program Office team for the next few days, so I have three days of meetings.

I have made the following changes though:

  • Remove the word "Freeware" from the document title as it was confusing some people.

  • Added in several more entries from the original Windows Freeware list (initially as red balled unknown applications), plus a couple from Joanie. (If you have others you'd like to see added please let me know).

  • Integrated in suggestions via comments to the 17th Jan 2007 blog post.

  • Added in proper alt="..." tags for the various HTML image definitions.
