Open Office 1.1

© October 2003 Tony Lawrence

Link: OpenOffice.org

I don't do a lot of word processing (vi is my editing tool) or spreadsheets, and all anyone has to do is look at this website to know that I know nothing about graphics, making things pretty, and so on.

But other people do, and this can be a good choice instead of Microsoft. I know quite a few people that use it, but you do need to be aware that it's not necessarily a drop-in replacement. For example, one client would have liked to use it, but found they would have had to rewrite all their macros, and they have a LOT of macros. So for them, it wouldn't work.

It might be just right for you, though.

An atheist is just somebody who feels about Yahweh the way any decent Christian feels about Thor or Baal or the golden calf. As has been said before, we are all atheists about most of the gods that humanity has ever believed in. Some of us just go one god further. (Richard Dawkins)
