There is very little that I can find that PDFpen does beyond the free Preview that comes with OSX Lion. These are features that I need that Preview does easily:
- move, delete, add, combine pages
- annotate and crop pages
- sign and fill out forms
If there are some features that I am missing, I would like to know. PDFpen, even with the MacUpdate Promo, is thus a poor value at $50-$99.

I have used Moodle for three years as a teacher with no programming experience. It was simple to set up my own server using the excellent installation documentation. Questions were answered on the free service forums in hours, not days. Although I use it for smoothly for 150 simultaneous students, Moodle is scalable to over 30,000 learners. In version 1.5, you will find a much improved quiz module, faster chat, customizable themes, more standards-compliancy, instant messaging, flexible blocks--all in 60+ languages. It is so easy to expand, I have 5 student programmers making a new module at my school for handling projects. Because it is open source, this module will be freely available to all schools along with Moodle which will always be free. The best part is the interface, which is intuitive for teachers and fun for students. All user comparison studies point to Moodle as superior to Blackboard and WebCT, except in price.

I will be watching this package with interest--we need a one step installer of AMP. However, Server Logistics already has excellent builds of recent versions to install separately--Apache 2, MySQL 4, and PHP 4. The PHP includes numerous modules including GD library and mmTurcke PHP accelerator. An accelerator is essential for database intensive webservers.
