Linux "You've built a linux desktop. You've mounted the learning curve to configure the hardware (or paid someone else to do so) and you are able to do your own work on the machine. You've discovered that if you can point and click you can run a modern linux OS on your desktop. But how is it you will ever relate to the rest of the world? What do you do with the MS attachments people send you? How do you enjoy the music distributed in formats for a Windows World?"

the only *real* problem i got was, that i can't do my work as a trainee at home. in business sometimes you simply have to code in visual basic. there's a "support" in open office, but it is *really* crappy.

but i can understand why the oo developers do not support it, they support python (do i have to say anything else?).

(edit: i've read the related article about novell and vba by now and hope you will excuse repetition ;)

than ms access *dot*

really not a big win and i don't like it, but i'm only trainee ;(
anyway, it's not supported. but why? i can install a free sql-server everywhere.

this is now the point? why should i develope a crappy solution, just to be compatible to ms?

this is the problem...
...and at home i write most of the time in groff. so my cv looks great ;)
but mmmh... there's NO doc import.
