Anybody here use open source GIS?

Just recently I've been looking at Quantum GIS again. A current development version has a plug-in that downloads OSM data and renders it, using the co-ordinate system and and datum of your choice. The rendering isn't what you get from the OSM web site of course, but it's not bad and certainly good enough to work with in the absence of anything better. I rather like the 'on-the-fly' transformations that QGIS can do with vector data, it's a pity it can't warp rasters (yet!).

Printing is dreadful, but this seems to be the case with all open-source GIS software.
