    "This will cost money some day ? :( Break out the defragger"

    September 24, 2007  |   By cybergaar

    Pros

    Interface looks nice. Save to PDF.

    Cons

    Requires a minimum 1GB RAM. Read min requirements. Software conflicts with some optical devices (camera, mouse) must uninstall device for software to work. Can you say FRAGMENTATION? Installation slings files into frag hell. Resource Hog - slow - memory leaks . . . but this is BETA and Free.

    IBM seems to be attempting to reproduce something like Open Office Suite, which is FREE and Works. Symphony is too sluggish to be productive at this time. Hopefully I can get this thing off my PC.

    This is the old Louts/Amie proprietary program upgraded and released as open source. Not a knockoff m$ clone. If you don't like office, give this a try.

    Symphony *IS* Open Office...do some homework before commenting. Go to openoffice.org OR the Lotus site for more details. BTW it will remain free forever...also something you would have known if you read anything at all about the project/program.
