One Problem With Open Source Equivalents
There are countless free open source equivalents to expensive softwares out there but why are people still paying so much to proprietry softwares? I feel that one main reason is familiarity.
Majority of computer users would still rather pay to have the familiar interface of the programs they have been using for a long time. As of now, I am starting a mini project to aide people in transiting from proprietries to FOSS.
Anyone got any ideas to do this?
I am thinking along the lines of developing a system for simplified instruction manuals. Right now, I am currently trying to come up with a way to integrate manuals for FOSS, maybe something like a wiki people can turn to when they are unsure of how to achieve the same result when they are using FOSS as when they are using proprietries.
One other idea I have in mind is to develope a standardised method of instruction, maybe with the help of something like a "manual-making software". You guys think it's possible?
What other ideas do you guys have? If you have any, I'm all ears. :)
