Microsoft: Still using Office installed on a PC? Gosh, you squares

Rick Stanley

Can you say LibreOffice?

Yes! A: It's FREE! B: It's on my own PC! MY DATA on MY COMPUTER, under MY CONTROL, and access! Plus it uses a truly OPEN and clearly documented file format!

Keep your friends close,

your enemies closer,

and your data in YOUR pocket!

Snacker discovers Nokia phone in crisp packet

Should never have happened

Food manufacturers should be running all their finished product through a metal detector before shipping, which should have discovered the phone! USDA/FDA/Appropriate Agency should be investigating the packer of the Chips/Crisps immediately!

"...COULD be made more secure"???

To passionate indifference:

> I guess a linux-based office solution COULD be made

> more secure, but this may well be more expensive, and

> sacrifices ease of use and integration.

You need to learn a little more about Linux before post a comment such as this. I can download a copy of several Distro's (Distribution) of Linux (Debian, Fedora, CentOS, ...), all FREE of charge, and most are more secure "Out of the box", than Windows ever thought of being! Then if that is not secure enough for you, SELinux (Security Enhanced Linux) can be applied to the Distro, again at no charge. See: http://www.nsa.gov/research/selinux/index.shtml Other options are also available to increase the security of any Distro!

The TCO of Linux over Mickey$oft is VERY obvious to most people, unless you read and believe the FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt) Mickey$oft and it's shills spew out daily!

"Military Intelligence" chooses Mickey$oft! ;^)

Why would ANYONE in their right mind put ANY copy of the most INSECURE, UNSTABLE, UNTRUSTED, MOST VULNERABLE O/S, for ANY intended purpose, on ANY military vessel or aircraft in ANY country in the free world, instead of Linux, BSD, and/or Mac based computers.

And people wonder why "Military Intelligence" is an oxymoron! ;^)

I would love the opportunity to make a presentation to the Ministry of Defense as to why they have made such a foolish choice of technology, thereby potentially endangering the lives of every citizen in the UK, the US, and the rest of the free world!
