    Libre Office is a spin-off from Open Office rather than a change of name (Open Office is still being developed). GIMP stands for GNU Image Manipulation Program, not such a stupid name. Good toolkit.

    Your comment on Al’s blog took me here. I have browsed around a bit and I like your blog. Great to see your use FOSS tools.

    Thanks Benjamin. Just Googled “FOSS” – you’re right, I do use a lot of FOSS tools!
