Today’s ‘Hot Steer’

02Oct06

I will be introducing a new category for this blog called, ‘Today’s Hot Steer’. It’s not what you think so don’t let your mind wander.

‘Today’s Hot Steer’ will bring you * insert your own powerful adjectives here * tips, resources and killer apps that I know will leave you either speechless or pleasantly satisfied. You may get the occasional ‘Ah-Ha’ moment and sometimes, the ‘So What?’, ‘What Should I Do With This’ and the ‘I’m Way Ahead Of You Kevin’ moments.

Many of these resources can be for your own personal use, for work or your business. Some resources may not be directly related to the subject matter of this blog, but because not clueing you in may affect my ability to stay guilt-free, I’m obliged to share great stuff with you. Indulge me, if you may.

Alright, let’s kick this category off with something you’re already familiar with: Open Source.

I’m sending you to a website which collates all Open Source applications that work on the Windows platform (I’m sorry Mac-ites, you might wanna sit this one out). You’ve just gotta to see it to believe it, so head on over to OSSwin Project.

If you’re a home user or a small business owner who cannot afford the time to browse through OSSwin Project’s comprehensive offerings, you might prefer MozOO and TheOpenCD. Both offer a free download of their CDs, comprising of quality Open Source tools that should suit your needs perfectly. They do offer a ‘Purchase’ option of the CD, but you might want to try that option only, if you’re averse to downloading anything.

These are Open Source tools that just about covers everything you need to have a fully functional PC at absolutely zero cost. If you possess more than one computer in your office or home, and are constrained by the legal bindings of your proprietary software, you now have possibilities.

It’s worth at least a thought.
