Alternative Technology Solutions

I’m building out a list of open source business solutions to the Microsoft and Adobe powerhouses. Here’s what I’ve crafted so far?

  • Gimp: Open Source equivalent of Photoshop, image editing power.
  • OpenOffice: Full featured office productivity suite
  • Scribus: Desktop Publishing

*Here’s a no cost option Adobe option: CS 2. No longer supported, but available for download. Use at your own risk, of course. The licenses are on the site.

Some key elements of the open source world:

  • Firefox: Browser extraordinaire!
  • Ubuntu: the most user friendly (in my opinion) of the Linux distributions.
