Re: Again free windows programs comparisons

Great comparison list. I have been using various openSource applications (NVU, Notepad++, Thunderbird, GIMP, plus others) for some time and in all of the cases I prefer them to the non-openSource applications.

Microsoft Frontpage embeds a lot of your personal information (name, address, phone) in your web page and makes it available to various web search engines. So even if you have web pages that are intentionally difficult to access, Frontpage will open them to the world. NVU keeps your private information private.

I use Open Office on the Mac here and it will open and work Microsoft office docs with no problems.

Re: Again free windows programs comparisons

I use a TON of freeware and openSource apps, and given the choice, would still choose them over the expensive "premium" products that other companies offer. You don't always get what you pay for. At least, not on the internet.

Having said that...

Open Office is a great free tool ... but there are times when it just doesn't do the job.

Andy;

Why would anyone want a Windows program?? I've dumped all my PCs for Macs & swapped MobWin for Linux.....
