Great Computer Programs

This weekend I found a great program when I upgraded to the latest stable version of Debian, Inkscape. It is a vector based drawing program similar to Corel Draw and Adobe Illustrator. It is available for both Linux and Windows. I'm planning on using it next year instead of Corel Draw 9 and our Beginner and Advanced Computer Applications class is planning on teaching Gimp. It's beginning to look like the open source community is becoming a truly viable option. I've always supported it but look at the alternatives.

Spelling Practice Features Request.

I'm looking at making a game that helps teachers teach students how to spell better. Please add comments below of features that you would like to see in a spelling program. Also let me know if you would like to be a beta tester. I'm hoping to get the first version done by the end of this summer, August 2011. Currently I have almost 500 commonly used words recorded for this program. I'm planning on adding the following categories: countries, languages of the world, states, capitals, and books of the Bible.
