The packages are broken down into the following functional areas:
Appendix 1 inevitably gives a very broad categorisation, but one which - whilst somewhat subjective - should nonetheless allow the user quickly to assess the relative merits of the various packages, and, in particular, to concentrate selection on functionality divorced from computing platform. Once a package has been selected from Appendix 1, it can be looked at in more detail in Appendix 2 before a final decision is taken.
