OpenOf­fice.org quit un­ex­pect­ed­ly

Tues­day 19 May 2009 02:06

No it didn't. I to­tal­ly ex­pect­ed OpenOf­fice.org to croak on open­ing the doc­u­ment it just re­cov­ered af­ter croak­ing on it the first time. I guess OpenOf­fice.org is pop­u­lar be­cause a lot of users are afraid of us­ing a ba­sic text ed­i­tor, but ba­si­cal­ly don't do any­thing fan­cy that would re­quire a com­plete of­fice suite. So just typ­ing some text works in OpenOf­fice.org, but if I try to do fan­cy stuff I used to do with Word 6 or Qu­at­tro Pro 5 it fails. I can't be­lieve OpenOf­fice.org is such a piece of shit it is prob­a­bly help­ing Mi­crosoft to firm­ly stay in busi­ness, or at least make web-based al­ter­na­tives look fast and sta­ble com­pared to OpenOf­fice.org. Or make me vir­tu­al­ize a Win­dows 3.11 and just use Word 6 and Qu­at­tro Pro 5, be­cause OpenOf­fice.org is un­us­able and it doesn't look like it's im­prov­ing.
