| Can someone here tell me in simple terms what avahi daemon handles?

Avahi is a system which facilitates service discovery on a local
network. This means that you can plug your laptop or computer into a
network and instantly be able to view other people who you can chat
with, find printers to print to or find files being shared. This kind of
technology is already found in Apple MacOS X (branded Rendezvous,
Bonjour and sometimes Zeroconf) and is very convenient. Avahi is mainly
based on Lennart Poettering's flexmdns mDNS implementation for Linux
which has been discontinued in favour of Avahi.
