"Ms McMahon said of her Compubeaver: 'I started thinking about the most ridiculous thing to put a computer into and decided it had to be a beaver.'" (That must've made her eyes water.)

"Tesco said it would offer six packages, including office software, security systems and a photo editing tool. Britain's biggest retailer said each title would cost less than £20, challenging what it described as the current 'high' price of software."
No word as to whether the Tesco office products are compatible with the Microsoft ones.

What does this mean for projects like OpenOffice — a harder sell, or increased interest?
