Re: So, give them the boot - use open source.
Oh, it's you. Again.
"When will you lot realise Linux/OSS/LibreOffice is of very little interest to anyone other than a very special kind of person."
When will you and your whiny cohorts realise that MS 'products' are of no interest to anyone at all; like the shiny toilet paper of old- nobody wanted it, but it was foisted upon all. A few fetishists still buy it for the pain, but to everyone else it is an increasingly unnecessary pain in the arse.
So take your MS crapware and use it in the same way- there are alternatives now, and they are quilted.
