| Time to update your old Microsoft Office, but don’t feel like fueling the
| fire of that giant, omnipresent corporation, not to mention again spending a
| pretty penny? Check out Open Office.
|
| Just about had it with Windows XP and don’t want to “cancel and allow” every
| single thing you do on Vista (and of course, save that cash)? Linux is the
| next step.

| Ubuntu - the most popular player in the Linux based operating system game.
| (Linux is the open-source answer to Microsoft's Windows operating system;
| Ubuntu is a modification of Linux). Ubuntu is a perfect solution for
| libraries who need to upgrade their older computers using outdated Windows or
| for bulk computer purchases requiring a new operating system.
