That will help a lot.
Here in Canada, the Quebec government is about to spend 1.4 billion $
to upgrade 500,000 desktops from MSO 2003 to MSO 2013.
This is only the provincial public service and does not include
municipal/city-level public service with approx another 300,000.
The original intent of my message (sorry if I used the wrong mailing
list) was to make a blog post to say that we as a community are aware
of the end-of-life for MSO 2003 that is less than a year away, and
here are some reasons why you should make the switch.
Yes, the formats are not perfect, and yes the license is free.
But most important, LibreOffice has 99% (?) of the same
functionalities of MSO and answers the need of 99% (?) of end-users,
either individuals or business.
I have to disagree with the above statement. There are still significant
problems with .docx documents in writer. All text type documents work,
but recieve something with grapic in it and the conversion does not work
correctly. i reports this way back on 3.x and 4.0. Still not fixed in
4.0.2. It occurs both in the openSUSE branded version and the version
direct from LibreOffice.
If everybody is going to be abadoning .doc this needs to be fixed. I
final may have found when it occurs today and will report it. (has to do
with text wraping around the graphic).
Don't get me wrong I use LibreOfiice exclusively and like it.
And to let you know alot of the .docx documents I get are from B.C. I'm
in Washinton, close neighor to them.
LibreOffice is the alternative!
