  • When running a business, you obviously want to increase your income. Chances are that you also want to reduce your expenses, or that you have too. For designers, software costs quite a lot (yes, I’m thinking of you Adobe Creative Suite). I never could make the switch to use open-source software only for graphic design work, but I wouldn’t switch back to paid software for some tasks.
  • 做自己的生意时,你当然想要增加自己的收入。同样的,你也可能想要节省开支。对于设计师而言,软件成本非常高(是的,我是指你的Adobe Creative Suite)。我不可能仅将开源软件用于设计任务,但对于有些事情它们非常有用。
  • Among thoses tasks that can be handled with Open Sources software, I’d like to mention a few that have been very useful to me over the past years.FreeMind
  • 我想要推荐几款我近年来一直使用的开源软件。
  • My favorite mind-mapping application. I’ve tried quite a few online apps for that but wasn’t satisfied with it. If you don’t use mind mapping you should, it helps you to structure your thoughts on complex things. You can use it for various tasks like creating a website’s hierarchy, structuring a blog posts, planning your business’ promotion or pretty much whatever you can think of. FreeMind is quite straightforward to learn and multi-platforms, so why don’t you give it a try?
  • 这是我最喜欢的mind-mapping 应用程序。之前我已尝试了许多在线应用但都觉得不满意。如果你还没用过mind mapping,那么你应该试一下。它可以帮你有序整理关于复杂事物的想法。 你可以将之用于创建网站架构、博客文章结构、商业营销计划,或任何你可以想到的事情上。FreeMind(http://freemind.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/Main_Page)是一款非常容易上手的跨平台工具,你何不试下。

  • 无论你是否喜欢,如果你有一个公司你就必须做一点会计。与其投资于其它昂贵的会计软件,何不试试GnuCash(http://www.gnucash.org/)。
