You need to fixup the links from that page, s/OSB/osb/

Biref looks fairly good.  But quite heavily focused on the programming/
heavy (server) end of town. Need to mention some of the excellent desktop work;
GNOME/ KDE as well as the 'office' type applications such as OpenOffice,
Abiword, KWord.

I'm also pretty sure there is a licencing angle for bodies such as ACT schools
who don't have a lot of $$ to throw around for 'rental' software, but would
gain greatly from access to OpenSource. Skill base remains here rather
than paying for commercial development in the US.
