Hail Open Source

I had an old CD that was not playing on my cd player. Placing the cd in windows explorer, I found that the file types were .aiff (Apple's old format). Scouting for a converter that would convert from .aiff to .wav, I only found sharewares.

Scouting further, I found this project Audacity, an open source project that deals with music file converters. Nothing to pay - got the job done.

I use the open source GNU Dia to create diagrams like UML.

Then there is JBoss, Eclipse, Tomcat....

Hail Open Source!

I started trying out Dia. It is pretty nice and quite powerful too.
