Good Morning, Dave… this is HAL and I am owned by Microsoft.

Jim is a fan of open source. Today he received more proof of the superiority of some open source products.

He’s been trying to make his job paper-free with the aid of technology. He has drawn many projects with an open source CAD program and exporting his results as a .jpeg file. The .jpeg files were good but not as crisp as he wanted.

Today he exported a small plan as a .png file. .png is an open protocol and to his surprise it saves a crisp picture that is readable on the BlackBerry and that makes Jim incredibly happy.
