  1. This is my first visit here; I am both a computer hobbyist and computer professional (web database and application development). I am also an advocate of open source software (Mozilla Firefox/Thunderbird/Sunbird). Currently using XP but may be convinced to make the switch to a Linux soon.

    OpenOffice here too

    Yes, I use OpenOffice too. MS Office will never again touch my computers. Unfortunately I have to use it at work as it is required by the people I contract to. You would be surprised how many people regularly (and blindly) post MS Word documents to their webs and do not know they are giving away personal and login information as well as change history (often embarassing!).

    I heard that Sun is making their products open source, to a degree. At least making them free. That would be interresting.
