Looking to get the most from your IT budget? Check out a recent eWeek article (http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,3959,882102,00.asp) that summarizes IT best buys based on a survey of IT professionals. The article mentions products in twelve IT categories and includes open-source products such as the Mozilla web browser (http://www.mozilla.org/), the MySQL database (http://www.mysql.com/), and the OpenOffice.org office suite (http://www.openoffice.org/). I am now using the free OpenOffice.org instead of Microsoft Office. If you need support, consider purchasing StarOffice (http://www.staroffice.com/), which shares the same code base as OpenOffice.org.
