Free software covers such a diverse range of utilities, applications, and other assorted projects that it can be hard to find the perfect tool. We pick the best of the bunch. This month’s column covers file management with Xfe, IRC, the Sync2cd backup tool, and email printing with Muttprint.

By the time this issue hits the newsstands, the election of the new Debian Project Leader will already have happened. Debian developers are again deciding who will be hold the reins of the Debian Project. When this issue went to press, there weren’t even rumors about the candidates. But one thing was for sure, Martin Michlmayr, who had held the office for two years, was not running. The reason Martin gave for this decision was that he needed more time for other things. Debian Project Secretary, Manoj Srivastava, will be posting the latest updates on the election regularly in the Debian-devel-announce [1] mailing list. The nomination phase is just the start of an election process that takes about three months to complete.
