QGIS and/or MapWindow

Although I just had an experience where my research worker asked for a 
Arcview (or whatever is the latest from ESRI) for some work on vector 
features (joining features from two sources, with different attributes I 
think) - she couldn't find out how to do it with either of those and was 
conviced AV could do it...

I didn't want to send her down the OGR tools and scripting path yet.
