A quick heads up-- two software packages have been added to our Files section that may interest up-and-coming filmmakers on a budget: First, there's OpenOffice.org, version 1.0.1 (Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris) -- a *FREE*, full-featured alternative to Microsoft Office, complete with word processor, spreadsheet, presentation software, drawing, etc. Document files can be exchanged with MS Office. A must-have suite, OpenOffice.org is available in beta for Mac OS X. Secondly, check out Abiword (Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, FreeBSD, QNX) - Also a free download. Abiword is smaller than OpenOffice.org and is a MS Word compatible word processor only. As of Jan 2003, Mac OS X requires X11 (free installation) to be running for OpenOffice.org (beta version) and Abiword to work. Subsequent versions will eliminate this requirement.
