The goes beyond the purpose of the FAQ tho, it was meant to be a short
list of possible software out there. More information would be suited
more towards a handbook information. To do that for every package
would make it a seperate FAQ. I had planned on a more in depth article
as well, but for the FAQ a short, simple list is best imho. Other
opinions? This list is meant to be an unbiased bit on what is out
there, not an in depth review and rating of each package..
