What free software do I use?
All links are in the appendix:

Xandros is one of my desktop operating
systems which comes with Open Office
and the Firefox browser. I use a Firefox
addon named FireFTP for transferring
files to and from my web servers and
Akregator for RSS feeds.


I use a product named “Kompozer” for
producing basic html files. I chose
Kompozer for it's simplicity

I use GIMP image editing software. It's
like Photoshop, but it is free

I deploy websites using Joomla, a free
CMS tool. CMS stands for ”content
management system”

The data base software I use is MYSQL
which also is free. Joomla integrates
nicely with MYSQL

All links to this software is in the
appendix.
