Why Linux Continues to Evade Mainstream Users

Winpass. Repair lost access due to a lost or corrupted password issue with this software? Again, as this is designed to bail out Windows users, one must admit there is a certain pride to be taken in using a Linux distro to crack a lost Windows password.

CloneXP. Cloning a Windows partition easily, over a home network is something that will definitely save you a lot of time. No worries, though, it will be at a Linux command prompt where all of this magic happens.

Ultamatix a successor to Automatix for new Ubuntu and Debian users.

Some Ubuntu fans out there may remember Automatix, a tool for Ubuntu that allowed easy access to many popular non-free applications and commonly-used audio and video codecs. It debuted a few years ago, and got negative reviews from Ubuntu developers and experienced users due to the risk of breaking dependencies, but it offered an easy solution for beginners who weren't familiar with the way deb packages worked.
