At A Glance: This week's JavaFX, OpenOffice and OpenSolaris Reviews


JavaFX
JavaFX bloggers continued to promote the use of the new software, with one blogger at Free Ebook Manual Download providing an informative tutorial of the software and saying "it was designed from the ground up to make GUI programming easy." Blogger Luis Barragan also encouraged the use of JavaFX 1.1 in several IDEs including NetBeans 6.5.

OpenOffice.org
OpenOffice.org
OpenOffice.org was named one of 14 "Best Bets" on PC World's list of 101 innovative and free tools. It was included on a similar post on Many Money Savers Blog, saying "If you are looking for an office suite program that is free, you can't beat OpenOffice." OpenOffice.org also was compared positively against MS Office, as blogger Matthew Bhowell said that it was a valid competitor because it offers similar features, provides the ability to create and use existing files on any version, and the free availability of the suite. Another blogger found the cross platform use beneficial as they used OpenOffice to open an old WordPerfect file that MS Word wouldn't access.

OpenSolaris
OpenSolaris made a strong impression with bloggers testing out the software, as Alyce Mendoza said that OpenSolaris 2008.11 “is progressing to be a great salutation frontward for the desktops newest participant…hats off to everyone setting in the work.” Only a few days into testing OpenSolaris, blogger Randall Rode also said that he was “loving it,” especially the “nicely packaged” Sun Web Stack including Apache, PHP, MySQL and Ruby.
