Outnumbered in his house one male to two females and three humans to six felines, Jack maintains his sanity by riding his mountain bike and working on his next books. For more news about Jack Wallen, visit his website Get Jack'd.

open source tools
I think you missed the important tools
Add to that lab software and hardware (data acquisition and analysis) etc.
We can work without word or outlook and paint but we can't work without Labview or MatLab or Eclipse; And computer aided tools like our computer controlled laser cutter or lathes or robots.
But fortunately there are open source tools for all of these as well, I am sure you know google well enough to find them.
Office tools are great for documenting the real work being done, and they may even help with sales but without manufacturing and development all of the different groups like IT and Finance and Human Resources are incapable of producing a product.
Yes I separate IT from software development because mixing the services of networking and providing heldesk, computers, email etc with software development is only hiding the true costs of each by mangling them together. And do you want the helpdesk guy responsible for say a reactor safety system? And I don't want the reactor physics guys responsible for network security but in a lot of companies they would get lumped together in IT.
