Re: Bibus

Care to elaborate? I agree that bibus is tedious to get setup correctly on some platforms (but you only have to do it once per machine). It is also not as good for searching collections (but you can easily import files into it). Once it is setup, it can put citations into MS Word and OO.o Writer as efficiently as Endnote.

Zotero may be even smoother--it has a more limited number of citation styles at this time, but it is quite good about scraping reference metadata off the web.
