A very helpful graphical platform for working with primarily Cheminformatics data and tasks. It is an impressive piece of software, that brings together disparate open source software in cheminformatics, into an easy to use graphical client.

A lot of mundane tasks like converting between varous chemical formats, generating 3D models from 2D ones etc, can be done by just right-clicking and selecting operations in menus.

There are some minor quirks, such as that the molecular drawing editor takes a little practice to get used to (after that it works fine though), and occasional very long waiting times when accessing update times etc, that draws away the last star. Otherwise, it is definitely a software worth checking out for the working cheminformatician.
