What to use?

Posted 11-03-2011 at 02:15 PM by williamfromtexas

There's so much OSS around us it's hard to know what or where to start.

I just heard of a cool new open stuff: Newscoop, a newspaper content management system. I like to write and publish, I like CM systems. The problem is that Source Fabric, the releasing organization, has also released another really cool system, for radio broadcasting.

Open Source Software

I got fed up with Microsoft and Windows constantly crashing, programs failing to work, and all the broken promises by Microsoft that each new software version was going to fix all the problems of the past.

Then I tried Linux (originally back in the late 1990s) and more recently after getting annoyed with Windows XP.

I have so far found that open source software (OSS) can certainly be of a high enough quality to compete with paid-for software from the likes of Microsoft...
