Microsoft shitting on Openoffice.org

Posted 10-16-2010 at 09:22 PM by William (Dthdealer) (Whaling the FOSS)

If I asked you to name an Office Suit with these flaws:
  • Technical support that is not free
  • Breaking without anyone fixing it ( at least for a month)
  • Money spent on installing and maintaining suite
  • etc
You would probably say 'MS Office'. Microsoft says otherwise

Code:
find /var/log/ -type f -print0 | xargs -0 grep -iH 'shutdown\|poweroff\|panic' | cut -d: -f1 | sort -u
