Wine is a way to run Windows software on Linux, but with no Windows required. Wine is an open-source Windows compatibility layer that can run Windows programs directly on any Linux desktop. Essentially, Wine is trying to re-implement enough of Windows from scratch so that it can run all those Windows applications without actually needing Windows.



Filename Randomizer


This little "applet" randomizes file names in a given directory. It will give them a random, 32-character file name consisting of hexadecimal characters (a-f, 0-9), and keep the extension of the file.

Why? Well, I have a lot of files that are really nondescript, and having a random file name for them instead of "New Text Document 45124.txt" works out better. For me, at least.

It requires .NET Framework 4.0 installed on the target computer.

Please note that it will skip "Thumbs.db" and "desktop.ini", so as not to screw up your thumbnails or folder settings.

Feature requests are welcome. Planning to add support for custom file name length in the future.

This is an application that can also be fetched from https://sourceforge.net/projects/fnamerandomizer/. It has been hosted in OnWorks in order to be run online in an easiest way from one of our free Operative Systems.
