Free open source software is frequently as good as expensive commercial software. This is the case with CamStudio vs. Camtasia. I've worked with both and while the cursor following was better in Camtasia, CS has an version that is at least up to the task. I'll be posting a YouTube video of the the software I've written to synchronize my Google calendar and contact information with my local Access database that I have used for years. Now I have the best of both worlds - cloud and desktop.
