So, funny thing, was advising my mom earlier about some software purchasing & Endnote came up, how it always broke with new versions of Word, requiring purchase of expensive new version of Endnote.

Anyway, told her it would be nice if she could move off Endnote to something, preferably open source, not made by exploitative jerks, that could import her existing reference database, having totally forgotten that Thomson Reuters, venal & wicked makers of Endnote had sued the Zotero project last year for making charming free software that does just that.

Turns out, the lawsuit got dismissed today, ha ha ha, in your face, Thomson Reuters.

So, Mom, why not give Zotero a try?
