    Oh God, did you have to give ammo to the inevitable trolls (old, rusty ammo as it may be)? :D Most of those issues have gone away, macros are still a problem, but reading the files is all but a non-issue these days.

    Well back when this video was released they were talking about MS 07.

    And I think the main issue was that there was no support for when the other issues cropped up. You could go to the website and ask for help but it's not nearly the same.

    I just thought it was an interesting note that "Open source is not always free."

    It's damn true that open source is not always free. I can tell you that from experience, lol. But that was dealing with Linux in general, and not an open source program by itself. I haven't used OO in quite some time, I use LibreOffice these days.

    I think most people have switched from OO to LO.
