Recession Worries? Open Source Software Is a Great Way to Cut Costs

,----[ Quote ]
| With the world economy in shambles many businesses are already battening down
| the hatches expecting rough seas ahead. IT budgets will shrink along with all
| other budgets, and maybe even more than other budgets. After all, companies
| still need to advertise and pay their workforce, but they may be able to do
| without new servers or software for a while. And that is where open source
| software vendors can help keep the ship sailing. Also read, Five Cheap (or
