This is not a question, but I just have to say it: OpenOffice is absolute gold! I was up late, working hard on a Government Paper, I was exhausted. I finally finished the paper and saved it for the tenth time on my Usb minidrive. I then forgot to unmount the drive and removed it. The two copies of my much poured-over paper were destroyed. the .doc and the .sxw files were unable to be opened and corrupted. I took the files to my windows computer and downloaded five different programs to try to restore the .doc, and none of them really worked. I was falling apart and I decided to try opening the paper one last time in Openoffice. The program offered to REPAIR the file! I got back my entire paper in an instant! I got back everything! Whoever put that feature into Openoffice is my hero and I suggest that anyone who believes in the rule that there are two types of computer users, those who have lost data and those who are going to lose data, use it.
Only linux could create such a sublime program/solution! Thank goodness for Open Source!!
