Great new piece of software, recently discovered by me - Foxit PDF Reader. Just a few advantages over the standard Acrobat Reader: it's faster, simpler and, most important, it allows you to save data in PDF forms! Yes, the so much desired feature, that is not available in the free version of Acrobat is readily usable in Foxit absolutely free of charge.
To continue with the great news, OpenOffice.org version 3.0 has been released. Interface and functionality have been improved greatly - definitely worth giving it a try.
Last, but not least - Firefox is getting closer to releasing version 3.1. A lot of new features, mainly under the hood, which, however, will enhance end-user experience considerably. We will patiently wait for the official release.
