GUI for LinuxCNC/Machinekit

There are some nice GUIs for LinuxCNC.

These GUI make LinuxCNC or MachineKit (LinuxCNC fork) control more user friend.

Here I list three more common options:

Axis
This is the original GUI shipped with LinuxCNC LiveCD/Installer distro:

Gmoccapy
Gmoccapy is an alternative to Axis focuses on Touchscreen devices and supports up to 4 axis CNCs:
