Not a question, unless someone has tried this and can report, but on some list recently I found a reference to SoftMaker Office. This is normally a pay-for program, but if you are
diligent, you will find that you can download free versions for Windows and Linux (BOTH!) that are supposed to be good to use forever, i.e., not trial software. Since I don't remember
what list it was (it was a Linux list--I don't belong to a Windows one!) I am passing the information on here. This software, which includes a word processor, a spreadsheet, and a
presentations routine, is supposed to be a real good clone of MS Office. I wouldn't know, since the last time I had to use Word was around the year 2000 while I was still working.
I downloaded the RPM version for Linux, and it seems to have installed OK, altho there were some odd messages on unpacking.
Anyway, just passing on the information, for those who are less than satisfied with LO or OO--you can count me among 'em.
