Just wanted to share a QGIS resource in case in comes in handy

It looks better then it was last time I checked, but still not full
featured for people used to ESRI

I would agree with Melissa and her assessment. You can use Qgis to
provide a gui interface with grass or at least you could last time I
looked at it about 5 years ago.  In an enterprise environment you are
probably better off with esri unless you have some good programmers.
Also esri provides a fair amount of support that save me loads of time
when there is a problem.
