Dan Napier’s Opinion:
The following are brands and sources for computer software and hardware that I have found to be useful. The costs vary, but I have found them to be the best value. Tomorrow somebody may have a better solution and these recommendations are my opinion. If you find some better stuff out there let me know. I like equipment that is reliable and that will work with other equipment. I think that it is important that software is open and that it supports many operating systems.
Recommends the following software:
Book Keeping: Quick Books That said the very best is a program that you wrote in C.
Web Browser:* Mozilla
Web Page Design:* SeaMonkey
Advanced Web: Adobe Photoshop
Only if you are a real masochist, this sutff is really difficult, stick
with SeaMonkey or just use Wordperfect and export to HTML.
Email Server Communigate. It comes with an excellent WEB Client or it can be used with Microsoft Outlook
Firewall Software: InJoy
Firewall Hardware: Cisco
Server: Lenovo Available with Linux
Telephone Cisco There are other VOIP solutions out there, but Cisco offers the most secure and most flexible systems. They are whatever you want them to be, but they are not plug and play.
Recommended computer hardware and
Any Hardware CDW (866) 437-4506 Phil Mercier
I know this is a sole source, but with
the advantage of the fact that Phil is a good guy, I do not
feel bad about sole sourcing. By the way you order today and get
it tomorrow! Usually for just UPS Ground Shipping Costs!
In my opinion the only systems to run with direct access to the world wide web are Linux, Apple, Unix or any IBM OS.
* This is free and will run on any platform.
Apple, IBM, Lenovo, Unix, CDW, Corel, Wordperfect, Garmin, Cisco and
Injoy, Adobe, Outlook, Microsoft and OS2/ Ecom Station are
trademark names and belong to the owners of those trademarks, certainly
not to us. We were not compensated for the above
recommendations, and we will not accept anything either. But a
nice lunch would be OK.
