Either that or Microsoft Office for Linux(tm) is coming soon!*

* MOfL might contain traces of subtile but annoying incompatibilities with Microsoft Office for Windows

Sounds exactly like Office for Mac 2011 - filled with incompatibilities that Microsoft never mentions and refuses to acknowledge.

PersonalBrain is fantastic but the free version does have limitations - you can only attach URLs to a thought, no file attachments. In order to attach files to a thought you have to buy the program. The Core version ($150) allows you to attach 1 file to each thought, while the Pro version ($250) allows multiple file attachments per thought. Also, a paid version is required to search for keywords within web pages or file attachments.

The attack started Saturday, and security experts have credited it with knocking the Federal Trade Commission's (FTC's) web site offline for parts of Monday and Tuesday. Several other government Web sites have also been targeted, including the Department of Transportation."
