Re: Installing Windows after Redhat Linux is installed




Actually I have found a few things that I haven't seen in ms office.  For example, in the Writer app there is a 'export to pdf' feature that I now use quite a bit.  I am sure there is a way to do this proprietarily, but I am glad to get in the habit of using OO.o's features and not having to worry about paying for stuff like that, downloading some plugin with limited functionality, or (worse) buying Adobe software outright. 

As far as the spreadsheet goes, I have yet to see any features that are missing, although I haven't used it enough to see a lot of the finer features of it.  I would also be interested to know what is missing for you in the spreadsheet program.

This is a test of the Really Sucky Email Client system. Again, this is
only a test. (Outlook is the only client that will sync with my Palm...)
