Hi,
Just wanted to mention that the OpenOffice.org lists, including user, are excellent. Very informative and helpful, plus very nice. Not flamey. A friendly place for open source greenhorns, one might say. ;>

Hi
I think with the information being passed around here this week they can expect quite a few of us to visit the boards as we are getting more intimate with OOo. I know the information I have gotten in this forum this week has helped in my decision to make the move to OOo.
Regards
Sal

You're not the only one who has made his decision. I also am going to give OOo a try.

As the banners say, things are better with no Bills to pay. ;>
Blatant plug: I do training so if anybody's having trouble convincing management or schools or whatever to switch, it might help turn'em if they can reliably get people trained.

Is there a training program in Dutch? I think that will be the main problem for the guys out here. They want to understand it when it's not in Dutch (I hate this attitude, but it's there).

Only if the Dutch are doing it. ;>
I believe, and of course am not sure if this is making people happy, that many countries including the Netherlands and Scandinavian countries, do their Sun training in English to avoid bothering with translating the books. Or rather, the speaking is done in the native language but the books stay in English and the instructor clarifies points where necessary.
I could do extraordinarily crappy French training but that's about it. ;>

All right as far as I can tell, (I'm a student at Computer Technology and Information Technology) most of our books are translated, only the ones that are very specific like Prolog aren't.
But I am going to try to turn everyone to using OOo. I said I was only going to try. I'm not sure if I'm going to succeed.
