What software are available for AtheOS?
There are not a lot of native AtheOS applications, but there is quite a few GNU applications ported to it. The server running this site is in fact an AtheOS machine. AtheOS has ok developer support through GCC, GNU-make, Emacs, and all other GNU utillities. I do miss a debugger though. There are a handful of network servers available: ftp(wu-ftpd), http(Apache), cvs, telnet...

Applications that have been written from scratch for AtheOS:
  • cpu - A CPU load viewer that draws a chart showing the "load history".
  • Pulse - Another CPU monitor displaying the load as one "pulsing" bar for each CPU. Provides a more instant feedback on the load.
  • A Memory usage viewer.
  • An desktop manger
  • An x-term like terminal emulator.
  • An icon converter that load's windows icons, and .BMP files and converts them to AtheOS icons.
  • An GUI for GS to view PDF files in a window (Dog slow, and not really finished)
