Software

We all know that Linux is about choice.

Everyone has the choice of what they use and how they use it, provided they have access to a tame hacker with suitable programming skills.

A consequence of this is that there's a huge range of software out there. If there's a popular favourite for a given task, you can bet your bottom dollar there'll be at least one alternative. You've only to look at the package selection options in most distro installers to see just how many choices you can make before you even start using your distribution.

Over the next few pages we'll highlight some of the choices available to you for some of the most common desktop tasks. There's no 'best' software here, for the simple reason that it's all the best.

Depending on what you want to do and the way you like to do it, everything on these pages is brilliant. So read on, try them for yourself and let us know what you think.
