Software

It used to be quite the challenge to make a Linux desktop business-ready. Most every business depended upon niche, proprietary software that simply could not be run on anything but Windows. However, times have changed and so much of business is now handled through a web browser. Add to that how much the Linux platform has matured and you have the makings for a big win on the open source front.

With the help of five applications, you can enjoy the power, stability, reliability, flexibility, and security of Linux. You’ll be surprised how common these tools are.

Let’s take a look.
