hmm, I'd actually forgotten staroffice, mainly out of hatred for it. I
had a copy of v5 from when Sun posted CDs out. It was almost quicker to
reboot into windows. I gather it has improved though. The others I didn't
know of. cool.
I still maintain that totally ditching windows *initially* may be a bad
plan. I know that in a rush, I reach for Photoshop ahead of The Gimp,
simply cos I'm more practiced with it and in a hurry I need that. Hence
'til you really know how to do stuff quickly you need to, I wouldn't
recommend wiping as you might regret not being abble to reboot back into
windows for 5 minutes some time.
