Try your hands on IBM Symphony

A free documents writing software and many more from IBM to push Microsoft. Though it is in beta stage rite now, it can proved to be a big step in the world of open source. Everybody is expecting kuch kuch abt this. One of my friend expects it is related to format war.

Without further ado lets talk about what this IBM Symphony is :
IBM Lotus Symphony is free suite of applications that includes Lotus Symphony Documents, Lotus Symphony Spreadsheets and Lotus Symphony Presentations. IBM also created a social network of sorts to go with the applications. There, users can download the editors, clip-art and document templates.

For more technical description you can use google. But one thing i say for those feared windows users is that it also works in windows so have a luck on it.

Pink Opera House ahhh... its Wonderful

I saw this pic on a news site and it attracted me.

The opera house was lightened pink to mark breast cancer awareness on 26th September 2007.

As a way of drawing attention to Breast Cancer Month in October, the Estee Lauder Companies initiated the Global Illumination campaign in 2000 to light significant architectural landmarks and monuments around the world pink. This time it was this Opera house.

The pic is really Superb. The house looks as if its made of gold :-)
