Re: A few general questions from a Debian newbie
OpenOffice 2.0 is an important piece of software...added
OpenOffice.org 2, to their updates repository shortly after it's
release...it likely will drive choice of distribution/version
I'm pretty tired of reading about OpenOffice 2.0. I still prefer
WordPerfect 6.1, to be honest, and it was released years ago. What is
it with Linux word processors that they can't have a grammar check?
Heck, WordPerfect 6.1 was released ages ago with one. But I digress.
To my main point: I'm a desktop user, not a programmer, and I had no
problem installing the "oh-so-special" OpenOffice 2.0 on my
Sarge-running computer. So, my question is, what is all this fuss
about? Installing OpenOffice 2.0 on Sarge is a breeze. Stop whining
And now back to my first digression: I realize that Abiword's latest
has a grammar check (coincidentally, I also had no problem installing
the latest Abiword on Sarge, which means anyone could install it, the
newest of the new, on Sarge). However, it fell far short of WordPerfect
6.1's Grammatik (released just as mankind was picking up sticks and
learning to beat the Monolith, I believe). Likewise, Diction, a Unix
tool, has been around forever; so, why do Linux word processors not have
something that Windows word processors have had since mankind first
realized the significance of having an opposable digit?
