The world is talking about GNU/Linux and Free/Open Source Software
Why you shouldn't wait for the perfect open source Windows-apps replacement
Last issue we began to explore the issues involved in moving from a Windows-based desktop with Microsoft proprietary apps to a Linux desktop with open source apps. Novell had announced a project to do that internally back in March 2004, and has now moved all of its employees to a Linux desktop - albeit for the majority of them one that can dual boot to Windows. One reason could be the unavailability of open source apps that include all of the functionality of the Microsoft apps they would replace, and we talked about that in the last issue.
