Open (Your) Office
Open Office 2.0 suite is almost ready for prime time. If you haven't tried OO yet, it is a great alternative to the other guy's product. It's not that OO does any one thing particularly better (besides being multi-platform), it's just so much easier on the wallet. There is a preview release is now available for download, and a review here. The new version has better MS-Office file compatibility, strict XML compliant output, and a new database program that mimics Access.
