I have stumbled on free software when I was 50, searching for an alternative to Microsoft Office. I was fed up with Microsoft Outlook, the worst piece of software ever developed. I am now over 60, and after ten years in the free software trenches, I have some ideas to share.

Tipping Point

Nokia buys Trolltech, Sun buys MySQL, IBM endorses Ubuntu, the Asus EEE PC is a sales success and is featured almost everywhere, and so on. Open source is on the right track to get to the tipping point sometimes during 2008, the day when a VNU (very normal user) will decide to switch just because there isn’t any reason against doing it.
