  1. Could you change the title so that this doesn’t look like an article that only lawyers would be interested in?

    (“Legal software” to me doesn’t mean “legally purchased”, it means software relating to lawyers, judges and transcriptionists).

    “MacLibre 2 released: free, legal software collection for Mac OS X”

    “MacLibre 2 released: free, Open Source Software Distribution for Mac OS X”

    In fact I read the page by accident…I dragged the link to a tab and it loaded just as I realized I didn’t care, if it was about “legal software”.

    Then I saw “Blender” and I was like “wth does a lawyer want a 3D app for”? ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”raspberry” style=”border:0;” />
