E o întreagă industrie în jurul lui X10. Un exemplu.X10 is an international and open industry standard for communication among devices used for home automation and domotics. It primarily uses power line wiring for signalling and control, where the signals involve brief radio frequency bursts representing digital information. A radio based transport is also defined.
Pe la noi nici nu e de asteptat sa auda lumea, desi mare parte din dezvoltarea "chestiilor" care stau la baza LinuxMCE s-a facut in Ro, la Iasi. Acu isi "ia zborul" in State.Cred ca trebuia sa postezi la topicul de "Programe de care n-a auzit nimeni".
X10 out of the box probabil. Cum se bazeaza pe Pluto, poate fi facut usor sa se pupe cu orice stie RS232, si in genere cu orice .

http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2007/06/google-desktop-now-available-for-linux.htmlGoogle Desktop for Linux makes searching your computer as easy as searching the web with Google. Not only can you rediscover important documents that have been idling on your hard drive for years, but you can also search through emails saved in Gmail or other applications. All office files, including documents and slides created with OpenOffice.org can be easily found. Since some Linux users are program developers, Google Desktop was designed with the ability to search source codes and information contained in .pdf, .ps, .man and .info documents. It also features the Quick Search Box ,which you can call up by pressing the Ctrl key twice. Type a few letters or words into the search box and your top results pop up instantly. Keeping with a global focus, you can use it in English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean --and it works with many versions of Linux too.
