Site of the Week

This week I’d like to send a shout-out to One Thing Well. It advertises itself as

One Thing Well isn’t just about software that adheres strictly to the Unix philosophy, though; instead it aims to showcase the applications, tools and utilities that—you guessed it— do one thing well, with or without a graphical user interface, on any platform, be they commercial, free or open source.

Everyday there are about three tools added to the site. Some are Apple focused, others unix/linux, and others are generic. However, there’s usually something for everyone. It’s on my list of sites to visit every day!
