[sugar] Difference between MS and Open Office

Mon Oct 27 13:05:09 EDT 2008

I started to use MS Office in the mid '90s and only after the 2000 version started to wonder, why the technicians became after each version more and more senile. And why the Office package began to grow like a montgolfiere. Or like La Fontaine's frog which wanted to look as big an ox was... 
    The prices doubled, tripled, quintupled by each version. Then came  the Open Office.
And changed everything. Actually in some of my translations I can't use but MS Word - because my client does not have the Open Office package. But otherwise for the last 2-3 years I am using only Open Office even though only the windows version, but with time, i'll use more the Linux one. 
    Last but not least: Open Office has inbuilt dictionaries for any possible language, while I am battling against a US English thinking MS Office 2007 when writing some not-English texts, i.e. in Hungarian. This US version is practically the only one version which one can find here in Serbia - and to me as asssermented court interpreter makes a hell of my life.

Sincerely yours
