PizzaJedi81: Arkanaut: Petey4335: Why does anyone still use word, excel or access?

Because their employers paid for it?

/uses google docs at home.

Yeah, I use WOrd and Excel (Excel more.) at work because, well, that's all they got.


"The Man" wanted me to use MS Office. I said "Man, what I look like to you - a closed-source corporate whore? NOTEBOOK, BIATCH! I THREW IT ON THE GROUND!"

Petey4335: Why does anyone still use word, excel or access?


Because I can get it installed on my personal computer free from work, on the off-chance I might do something work related at home.  And OpenOffice feels like the equivalent of the bookcase I cobbled together from scrap lumber.

Use an AutoDesk product for a month, you'll never complain about quirks and instabilities in a MS product ever again.

Because Openoffice is a farking joke for anyone with even moderate needs from their office suite.   I run Excel spreadsheets that literally cause OfficeCalc to choke and die.

That would be one of the more positive reviews of recent Word versions that I've seen.
