Using Oo/Lo since

We have 9 computers in our small company and decided to switch to Oo/Lo in 2007. Since then we have used only in special occasions the only license of Office 2003 we still owe - when we received files that needed MsO because of some fancy formatting. All our documents are in odt/ods format and we save in doc/xls when we have to forward those files to our partners. Of course we encounter sometimes formatting mismatches at some documents that we receive but nothing to be to hard to correct. As we had seen, most of people we are working with are using only the basic formatting functions in word or excel, that are fully compatible. For us Lo is all we need: a fully functional package at no cost and with the benefit of the classic menu.

Re: An ideal car for the French market

Atomic is, I believe, an Austrian brand sold to a Finnish corporation and now built in Bulgaria? I'm not defending Renault, it's only Clio and Megane that make some sense for me, but even in that class I'm more for a Peugeot or Citroen.

My answer for a good free NAS

was mini ITX case silent case, one mini iTX silent motherboard, low power CPU, 8 Gb RAM, 2 x2Tb HDD, one memory stick + freeNAS 9.1; needs a little bit of reading but nothing to be scared of.
