"Why does anyone need it?"1.5 starson
Summary: I don't even own a copy. Office 97 would still meet most of my needs if I used it. I presenetly use OpenOffice.org 1.0.1. It does everything I require. What really gets me is that Cnet chooses this bloated cow as number 1 in their list of top ten software titles for 2002 even though less than 50% of users responding gave it a thumbs up. In fact, four of the top ten titles in the software category were Microsoft products. Makes you wonder how much monetary support Cnet receives from Microsoft. I wonder if they bother to look at the open source software arena at all and the revolution that's gaining more momentum every day.
