Kano: michaellarabel: you still forgot openoffice 3, now officially on homepage...
mha: I rather use Office 2003 under wine tbh.. :)
mha: or um. was 2007 installed even \o/
Kano: well wine had problems with the ppt viewer, i didnt want to use something else with wine
mha: I've experienced so many quirks with openoffice and incompatabilities back and forth that it has become unusable to work with for any larger proportion of project.s
Xemanth: openoffice site is totally jammed
Xemanth: and now broken
kahu: openoffice.org is down :(
Roberth: not suprised:P
Ivanovic: is currently installing openoffice 3.0 via gentoo
Ivanovic: hugs portage and the gentoo mirrors
maligor: Ivanovic, compiling it?
Ivanovic: maligor: no, using the bin version of openoffice
maligor: I think it has the most massive source code database of all opensource software :P
maligor: takes ages
Ivanovic: jupp, that is why i don't compile it myself and just use the precompiled version
Deanjo: installed openoffice 3 last night and can't really see anything to get excited about.
maligor: yeah, dunno really why they put major version
Xemanth: its sexy to have big numbers
Xemanth: maybe next openoffice will be "openoffice.org 2010" so that it matches with Office and sales go up as an rocket
Xemanth: away >
maligor: they need to put a green and blue interface with gradients so it'll look 'cool'
