Windows Personal Firewalls Comparision

As part of Windows Personal Firewall Analysis project matousec has performed their own leak-testing on most of the personal firewalls for windows.

They have examined 21 personal firewalls and published the results on their site. It is very interesting to see popular products such as ‘ZoneAlarm’ and ‘Norton Internet Security’ were listed there under very poor protection. ‘Comodo’ tops the list with the highest score.

Feel free to check yourself before choosing a firewall or switching to a new one.

OpenOffice Plugin for Microsoft Office

Good news to Microsoft Office & Open Office users. Sun has made ODF Plugin 1.0 for Microsoft Office available for download on their site.

The plug-in is an extension to Microsoft Office that allows it to read and write ISO standard ODF files. It supports Office 2000, XP, and 2003, and works on Windows XP and Vista. It adds to MS Office the ability to read and write ODF text, spreadsheet, and presentation files (.odt, .ods, and .odp) – the ISO standard editions of MS Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files. Furthermore, ODF text files (.odt) can be made the default format for MS-Word thanks to this plug-in (and double-clicking on an ODF text file on the desktop would automatically open it in MS-Word).
