Great Free Software Hunt

What's it all about?

The virtual free equivalent of Microsoft Office and other graphics programs can be had for free. It's what's called open source software. This is because often the developing community, much like MoneySavers, like to hunt as a pack and work on constantly improving software rather than being locked into the rigid constrains of commercial software.

So I'm starting a Great Hunt for the best and I'm putting my own suggestion, Open Office to start with.
