IBM's Symphony Office Suite

IBM is challenging Microsoft with a game of "anything you can do I can do." Its new Lotus Symphony office suite--now available as a public beta--does much of what the $400 Standard edition of Microsoft Office does, only at a much better price: It's free.

(IBM says a version for the Mac OS is coming, but hasn't said when.)
