There are great Open source software which can beat their propritery competitorse and can be used with windows . For audio editing there is Audicity , for instant messenging their is GAIM and for animation and 3d rendering their is Blender 3d . Open Office can also run with windows but its is not as good as Microsoft office.

While the first part of your post highlghts some exttrordinary FOSS apps, I can't understand the last comment. OpenOffice in many ways is BETTER then MS Office, it just depends on what you are doing with it. There are some capabilities in OO that MS does not even have!

Do you have a Blogger(blogspot) Blog and do you know Google is deleting blogger blogs??

As usual, I was checking backlink tool to find some of the friends link (who has linked backed to me before) if they still have my link backlinked to me or not. Well, some of them didn't link back to me. I checked their site and the message I got upon visiting their blogspot(blogger) blog was something like "this blog has been deleted." As I was visiting some of the other blogspot blog, I found few of them got deleted too. I thought, may be they got over blogging. Recently more and more blogspot(blogger) blogs are unavailable or being deleted. Now, these things forced me to think why those blogs are being deleted. I usually check official google blog for any kind of stuff they are upto. Their blog was shut down too(it's some days before), they are online now though. But, it's quite eerie because this very blog of mine is hosted on blogger's server too. I don't know what happened to their official blog but it's confirmed news they are deleting blogs. M
