tells me that we probably should have a copy of a users manual that is
part of the download package and something very obvious just after
install that leads users to it. OOo/LO is certainly not alone in this,
most commercial/proprietary software today is equally remiss in this
area, even MS Windows 7 itself is sorely lacking in the area of a users
manual. After a lot of Googling I finally did manage to find and
download one. Thing is it should have been on the MS Win 7 upgrade
disk, and it should have been preloaded on this laptop when I bought it.
Actually the fact that even the mighty Microsoft sucks in this area
should give us an incentive to do better than them, or is it they?
Whatever, perhaps we could get one of the people who wrote good users
manuals for OOo to contribute one to be placed in the download package.
I seem to remember a very good one by a lady by the name of Solveg as an
example of what I mean.
