strongSwan is an OpenSource IPsec implementation for the Linux operating system. It is based on the discontinued FreeS/WAN project and the X.509 patch which we developped over the last three years. In order to have a stable IPsec platform to base our future extensions of the X.509 capability on, we decided to lauch the strongSwan project.
The focus is on
1.simplicity of configuration 2.strong encryption and authentication methods 3.powerful IPsec policies supporting large and complex VPN networks
The maintainer of the strongSwan project is Andreas Steffen, who is a professor for security in communications and head of the Institute for Internet Technologies and Applications at the University of Applied Sciences Rapperswil in Switzerland and president of the consulting firm strongSec GmbH.

Songbird utilizes the cross-platform frameworks Mozilla XULRunner and GStreamer media framework, and largely capable of running on Microsoft Windows, Apple Mac OS X, Solaris and Linux.
In January 2010, Philips announced they will ship a personalized version of Songbird with some of their line of portable audio/video players.
On April 2, 2010, it was announced that POTI Inc. will drop official Linux support ending with Songbird version 1.7.2. POTI Inc. would instead focus on its Windows and Mac OS X versions of Songbird, providing only unofficial support for Linux releases. Linux builds are still being offered, but only as nightly builds (not on the main page) and they are not tested by the developers.
