For some time now I have used OpenOffice as a replacement for MicrosoftOffice. (We have a very old version of MicrosoftOffice that the rest of my family use). The biggest annoyance with OO was that I could not directly paste from BW's browse pane; it didn't recognize BW's format. I had to copy to BW Editor, and then from there copy to OO.
Some days ago I decided to see what kind of upgrade might be available for OO, since I hadn't upgraded for a year or three. I discovered that OO had languished after Oracle bought oversight of it, and that some of the key developers of OO had come out with updates. Since they don't have legal right to the OO name, they call it LibreOffice. They claim to have significantly expanded OO's ability to deal with various data formats.
I installed LO, and can now drag and drop from BW browse pane to LO.
I didn't uninstall OO before installing LO and discovered that the two systems interfere with each other; after uninstalling both and reinstalling LO it seems to be working fine.
Aren't free programs that work well a great thing?
