Firm Deploys OpenOffice--Where It Makes Sense

With open-source productivity suites getting better and better, the cost of Microsoft Corp.'s Office is looking higher and higher to FN Manufacturing LLC.

Last year, FN Manufacturing began testing 1.1.1 with the hope of mitigating the costs associated with an enterprisewide upgrade to Microsoft Office 2003. FN Manufacturing's goal was not necessarily to entirely replace Microsoft's Office suite, but to find and deploy a more cost-effective office solution where and when possible. And for Ed Benincasa, an eWEEK Corporate Partner and vice president of MIS at FN Manufacturing, the more the suite matured, the more compelling he found the open-source alternative to be.

An open source value central to the Internet

It's a value at the heart of successful open source projects. It is also at the heart of the Internet.

It's not majority rules. It's everyone agrees, or at least accepts the agreement of the vast majority.

But none of these alternate values deliver what consensus delivers. You realize this when consensus is lost.
