Here are a couple of links as I found yesteday as I continue my personal "software quality" quest:

In "news of the week", Sun Microsystems whacked about $200M in revenue (based on my count) from Microsoft by winning a deal with the Chinese government to provide 500K-1M workstations loaded with Linux and Star Office. Is this the beginning of a major new trend towards "sufficient, low-cost software"?

I hate the new Acrobat Reader -- it's way too complicated for what I need -- so I dug around and found this URL for older versions of Acrobat Reader. IMHO, keep it simple guys.
