I'm willing to try to open office, but because I'm at work and everybody has the MS office stuff, I would think things would be more smooth in terms of being 100% compatible if I send something.
is openoffice 100% compatible now days, I had a previous boss load it and we had alot of problems with them being compatible with the MS office products. Such as losing formatting and those types of things.
I'm sure the more I learn about linux the more I will find native programs. Like I'm currently going to be using gimp instead of photoshop kmail and those programs.
I'm actually anxous to find native linux programs and getting to learn how it all works together, however I have to remember that this will be the computer I'm workin with on a day to day basis and have to make sure I"m compatible with everybody else using M$ configurations and software.
I've been using Trillion as a messanging client, any suggestions on a native linux one that's as good or better?
