The case for Open Office?

The Case for OpenOffice is a pretty interesting and balanced account of why OpenOffice, might or might not be a feasible alternative to Microsoft Office for some users.

Quite a few nonprofit techies are starting to perk up their ears about this. I’ve tested it out a bit and found that it works pretty darn well. Not sure I’d strongly push groups towards it, but I’d definitely use it for personal stuff, and if a small organization was interested in experimenting at the leading edge, I’d go for it.

Phoenix — a nice, fast Mozilla-based browser

Phoenix is a great little browser. It’s based on Mozilla, but is much faster because it jettisons the add-on email, HTML editor, chat modules, and focuses exclusively on a fast, feature-rich browsing environment. And because it uses the core Mozilla code, it will keep pace with Mozilla’s impressive development. Definitely worth checking out as an IE alternative.
