I find myself going to the OBS-Education area for the chess game "crafty" ! In openSUSE-11.2 milestones, it appears that front end "xboard" has been dropped, so I have also grabed that from "factory" in Education. I probably could have gone to the "games" OBS project area, but to date I've found the OBS-Education version of "crafty" (and "xboard") has worked well for me.

Just the other day, I also went there for the HTML editor "bluefish".

For my own curiousity, what apps do other users like to use from that area ? http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Education/
