"Last month we saw how you could set up and secure a network using Linux right out of the box. The components that come with a typical Linux distribution (in my example, Caldera OpenLinux) enable you to set up and administer the Linux network, and provide some basic development and productivity applications and utilities."

"But Linux users working with only the distribution CD have to step back through time and use a more limited selection of applications, typically with command line or very basic graphical user interfaces. To broaden your choices without increasing your cost, you have to search for free software alternatives on the Web. Once you do, you'll find a collection of collaboration software as broad and as deep as you would expect for any operating system."

"The first place to turn for free software that may not be included with a Linux distribution is the Free Software Foundation and its GNU Project. The GNU Project and its founder, Richard Stallman, are well known for producing a wide range of high quality software, often for software development uses. Other developers for the GNU Project write a variety of different types of software, from utilities to suites."
