Another Reason to Use Free and Open Source Software (FOSS)

Posted by Mike on June 8th, 2005

I was reading The Bleat today and came across this complaint from James Lileks.

Everything doesn’t work. I tell you, it’s hell. The modem is shot, the old monitor I’m using is blinking short-short-long to indicate an imminent backlight failure (the new monitor is in the shop) and I can’t use my HTML software on the laptop because I lost the original activation code I got, oh, five years ago. I’ve been using upgrades ever since. No idea what the original code is.

He has lost is original product activation key and it looks like he doesn’t have many good options, except buying the software again. I gather from his writing that he uses a Mac. FOSS software may be an answer.

I don’t know his requirements, but I like Nvu for basic WYSIWYG HTML editing.
