IBM Lotus Symphony

IBM just announced the released of IBM Lotus Symphony. It is a suite of free software tools for creating and sharing documents, spreadsheets and presentations. I'm downloading it now and will try out the features soon. This offers an alternative solution for MS Office or the free version of Open Office. Personally, I have recommended people to use Open Office if they just need most basic function of office suite. For most day to day use, Open Office is more than sufficient. The best feature on Open Office that's missing in MS Office is PDF conversion. Lotus Symphony also providing that feature and supporting Open Document Format (ODF). So can Lotus Symphony live up to the expectation, download it and test it out. Check out Ed's for more info.
