LOL! The second time I used a different email address, so I've just sent
it a third time!

I've just noticed that the first one is still stuck in the mailq with the
message (Deferred: 451 4.7.1 Please try again later (TEMPFAIL))

Office is only one package among many used by large enterprises;
producers of specialist software write for the most widespread platform
to maximise sales.

Personally I use Open Office as I'm favour of standards such as the open
document format, but I don't consider Sun superior to Microsoft.

I don't think there is any call for cheap shots such as 'Micro$oft
Windoze"; for many people that is the easiest platform to use.

Linux can be rather daunting and just because you are at ease using it
doesn't mean you should call others morons.

If people could use CP/M, and then MS-DOS, why can't they also use *nix?

2/ "Shared source" is a poison pill. Open Source is freedom.
3/ Only the Windows boxes get the worms.

Having used MS-DOS in all its incarnations and also various versions of
Unix/Xenix/Linux, I would say that MS-DOS was much easier for the
average person to use.
