Victory for Microsoft as Supremes decline to hear Novell's WordPerfect whine

ArthurKinnell

I've spent most of my working life either in house with law firms, or as a contractor.

WordPerfect was the WP of choice when I started out in the late 90's and continued to be so (along with SoftSolutions and GroupWise) well into the 00's.

Speak to any secretary from that era still working and they will still talk glowingly of WordPerfect, and I don't blame them! Thankfully I don't often have to delve into the nastiness that is Word, but when I do it's to try and tidy up horrific formatting errors etc.

The Y2K bug killed SoftSolutions but there are still plenty of us out there using GroupWise!

If we can shoehorn linux

If we can Shoehorn Linux onto it, then I'll be able to run it up the flagpole and push the button on that. Has got to be Ubuntu Touch for me.

Shoehorn Linux onto it, then I'll be able to run it up the flagpole and push the button on that, I'm thinking Ubuntu Touch.

'Chromecast - recycle it after a long fulfilling life of kitten videos'

If we can Shoehorn Linux on to it, then I'll be able to run it up the flagpole and push the button on that.

So true, would have to be Debian flavoured though. None of this Redhat nonsense. I mean Yum really?
