There are various tools out there like DocBook, ReST, mark down, wikis, etc. Which tool do you recommend?"

Submission + - Free Software, Sold (lampcomputing.com) 1

Sudheer_BV writes: "Many businesses are exploiting the lack of computer novices' knowledge and sell them software that can be obtained gratis. Although the license may permit them to sell free and open source software, charging $49 for a download link on the Internet is ridiculous. Some people do not know that quality open source software can be downloaded from the respective project sites and also obtain support from the community for free. These computer novices fall pray to sites that sell them a mere link.

On the OpenOffice.org users mailing list this is a common scenario. Users have claimed refunds for various reasons on the OO mailing list. Only then do they realize that OpenOffice.org is a free and open source software and can be downloaded from www.openoffice.org without paying for the software. How many other free and open source software download links are sold everyday? Shouldn't somebody take action against these phoney vendors?
