Don’t you just love the alarmist headlines TV anchors use to suck you in to the 11:00 news. “Is your house killing you?” The answer is invariably no, probably not. It is probably not the end for Microsoft Office either – except in my house.
I made the switch to OpenOffice.org a few months ago and overall have been happy with it. Now my whole family is using it. There are no computers in our house running Office any more.
