I saw this post and liked it for two reasons:
- I use a lot of this free software, and although I trust it, for some reason it makes me feel better about using it knowing that other people do too
- For libraries looking to expand their public computer offerings or security, these are no-cost ways of trying things out. Also, resources like LiveMocha (and others) are good to know about to supplement library services
Amazon's bestseller lists are always intriguing - putting the "buyer's advisory" twist on it, and with all free software, no less, is neat.
