[Begin Shameless Plug]
A good friend of mine has established a web-site advocating Open Source Solutions for local governments and non profits, Check it out if your looking for ways to save money and find alternatives to the WINTEL software. Many of the programs that he lists are comparable to their $$$ counterparts. Check it out at www.tenthousandtowns.org/ [End Shameless Plug]

What are your experiences with Open Source Software?
