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.
