9 Excellent Open Source Configuration Management Applications
This software automates the configuration of machines to a particular state. Like any other tools, they are designed to solve specific problems in certain ways. The goal is to get a system from whatever state it is in, into the desired state. Configuration management software are the tools of choice for many system administrators and devops professionals.

    BOOLE is a system that converts a CSG (Constructive Solid Geometry) model into B-rep (Boundary Representation) form. It is designed to work on curved solid primitives like cylinders, tori, spheres, generalized prisms etc., as well as polygonal solids. BOOLE performs the set operations union, intersection, and difference on solids.

  • Evolvotron
    Evolvotron is an interactive "generative art" application for Linux to evolve images/textures/patterns/animations through an iterative process of random mutation and user-selection driven evolution. (This process is also often referred to as "evolutionary art" or "genetic art".) If you like lava lamps, and still think the Mandelbrot set is cool, this could be the software for you.

    Fractgen is a simple software built by using the Qt libraries, for generating fractals, enabling the users to zoom into images, save image parameters as XML files, export calculated images as PNG files.
  • Fractint

  • Fraqtive
    Fraqtive is a program for drawing Mandelbrot and Julia fractals. It uses a very fast algorithm and generates high quality, smooth images. It is fully interactive, allowing for real-time mouse navigation and dynamic generation of the Julia fractal preview. OpenGL-rendered 3D view of the fractals is also supported. Read more
  • Gfract
    Gfract is a GTK-based fractal program that currently implements the standard Mandelbrot and Julia sets. It features infinite image size with infinite anti-aliasing if you have the memory for it, Julia instant preview mode, user-specified coloring algorithms and PNG support. For palette files it uses the same format as Fractint does, except that it supports arbitraly large palettes.
  • gkII
    gkII - Mandelbrot Munger is yet another Mandelbrot fractal image generator. But, instead of just being plain happy with the mandelbrot calculations it does some more calculations developed with the artistic eye in mind. These calculations act like a mask, revealing, concealing, and augementing the original M-Set.
  • glfract
    glfract loads fractal {Mandelbrot, Julia} sets from file as specified by David Eyerman's Eyefract v0.56-1 and displays them in 3D space with OpenGL/Glut.
  • gmandel
    Gmandel is a program for exploring intricate and beautiful details of the Mandelbrot set, the classic fractal image. It begins with the common graphic of the mandelbrot set, from which you can select portions with click-and-drag for enhancement. You can set the number of colors per iteration, and the iteration limit.
  • Gnofract 4D
    Gnofract 4D is a program which allows you to create beautiful mathematically-based images called fractals. What sets it apart from other fractal programs (and makes it "4D") is the way that it treats the Mandelbrot and Julia sets as different views of the same four-dimensional fractal object. This allows you to create images which are a cross between the two sets and explore their inter-relationships. Read more
  • Gnomechaos
    Gnomechaos is a simple fractal program which renders images like Chaossope. It renders fractals including flames, render solid images and flames in anaglyph mode.
    IEFMIRASHOW displays a selection of dust-type mira fractals one after the other in color, rather like a slideshow.
  • jrMandel
    jrMandel is a command line, parallel Mandelbrot set fractal renderer. It is specially designed to render high-resolution fractal images taking advantage of parallel processing, either by using multiple threads of execution (and thus suitable to run on multi-core processors) or by using a Parallel Virtual Machine (PVM) to distribute the tasks among the nodes of a computer cluster. jrMandel can also render fractals without using any parallelism, in order to compare the efficiency between parallel and non-parallel runs.
  • KFourier
    Fourier is a X11 / KDE based image processing program that use the Fourier transform to use multiple filters on an image, it works on Linux, BSD, and other unices.
  • kmandel
    An easy to use and powerful fractal generator.
  • Koch Curve Generator
    A simple Koch curve generator written in C++, featuring interactive point editing.
  • L-system Explorer

Major features include: Syntax coloration, brackets highlight, automatic / manual tabulation system, completion system (with both keywords and declarations/macros), declarations / macros listing, included files parsing, ini editor, ini profile assistant, and scene rendering via .ini files.
  • Quat
    Quat is for the calculation of genuine three dimensional fractals, like those you can see in the Artist Forum, the Fractal Gallery or at the Sculptures. These fractals can be cut open to explore their interior. For this purpose you can define intersection planes, whose positions can be adjusted freely.
  • Symmetry in Chaos
    Symmetry in Chaos calculates fractals using a method first described in the book "Symmetry in Chaos" by Michael Field and Martin Golubitsky.
  • visprint
    Visprint makes fractal fingerprint png images based on the contents of any file. The image will be different for almost every file with even slightly different contents. Visprint uses the IFS fractal generation process, pioneered by Michael Barnsley. It is a way to create images which are self-similar to infinite depths.
  • wmMand
    wmMand is a Window Maker dockapp that allows you to browse or explore the Mandelbrot fractal. Although designed for Window Maker, it also works fine with most other window managers.
  • XaoS
    XaoS is a fast portable real-time interactive fractal zoomer. It displays the Mandelbrot set (among other escape time fractals) and allows you zoom smoothly into the fractal. Various coloring modes are provided for both the points inside and outside the selected set. In addition, switching between Julia and Mandelbrot fractal types and on-the-fly plane switching is provided. Read more
  • XFracky
    XFracky is a small multithreaded Tcl/Tk 8.0 based Linux-application for rendering fractals (2d, 3d and animations) using methods such as borderscanning and iteration tracking. New fractals can be added as plugins. There is a demo-mode which continuously renders any of a set of preconfigured fractals. It has support for 8/16/24/32 bit displays.
  • Xfractint
    Xfractint allows the generation of Mandelbrot, Julia, IFS, and many more fractals in 2D and 3D, including those you design yourself. Read more
  • Xmountains
