Its a bit off topic for tacos but I must say my piece.
Several of us at AMRAD just finished putting together a technical report
with pictures, spreadsheets and presentation graphics imbedded. We
passed files back and forth on the Internet as pieces were put
together. I used to have terrible problems with the "other" (M$) Office
as documents grew and were coming together. Machine lockups, broken
margins and just plain goofy screwups that cost valuable time.
OpenOffice ver 1.1 worked flawlessly this time. This was on a 21 page
It is a real step forward in stable and reliable software for serious
productivity work. It includes a feature to write out an Acrobat file
which used to cost another arm and leg.
Check OpenOffice out at http://www.openoffice.org/.
And, it is free.
