"Afraid to switch to Linux because you've heard there isn't
enough software out there that runs on the Linux OS? Don't fret.
We've picked five outstanding Linux apps, including a browser,
an image editor, and a batch of office suites (one for developers,
one for regular users, and a free one for cheapskates). Read on for
our best-of-breed collection."
"Applixware 5.0... If you're a programmer or a developer, you'll
love this customizable suite, which lets you create your own
applications. Anyone else should choose WordPerfect Office 2000 or
the free StarOffice 5.2."
"Corel WordPerfect Office 2000 for Linux Deluxe... If you like
WordPerfect Office for Windows, you'll love WordPerfect Office 2000
for Linux. It's a little pricey, but since it looks and feels just
like its high-quality Windows counterpart, it's a must-have for
anyone who wants to make the switch from Windows to Linux."
