Dave, I know about that cleanup.  In fact I and my programmer protested to them at the time but we were told it was too late when we did so.  If they had then we would have tried to do the port, I was even prepared to employ a part time extra programmer then.  Now things have moved on and my programmer is only part time by her choice and we concentrate much more on hardware for industry.

Hi Leo,  Thanks for that list.

Since all we use AOO for is the word-processor and to occasionally look at a power point that someone sends I don't think we are going to have any problems.


Ivan,

I use OpenOffice for a lot more: spreadsheets with many macros; dozens of databases in Base; mailings in Writer etc.

That is why I need java.

For a simple piece of text  one can better use a text editor like Smalled or AE.EXE: much quicker and no overhead.

Greetings,
Leo

One problem with a simple text editor - they can't use writer2rpub to create the basic e-pub we use when we create manuals for clients.
