- gnuit (GNU Interactive Tools) is a set of file browsing and viewing tools (a text-based file manager).
- Git (Guitar/Instrument Tuner) is a defunct portable guitar tuner.
- Grit (GBA Raster Image Transmogrifier) is a tool to convert images to the Game Boy Advance hardware. It used to be called "git", but have since changed name.
