      TagUI vs AutoIt opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      TagUI is powerful. I love it. Has a steep learning curve especially since there isnt much in the form of documentation or help apart from what the author has written. But once you get the hang of it, its fun.

    8. This tool lets you simulate keyboard input and mouse activity, move and resize windows, etc. It does this using X11's XTEST extension and other Xlib functions.
    9. GNU Xnee is a suite of programs to record, replay and distribute user actions under the X11 environment. Think of it as a robot that can imitate the job you just did.
