Microsoft has the best products money can buy -- at least, that's what they would have you believe. However, remove money from the equation so MS buyers can't brag on the size of investment, and OpenOffice fans can't gloat about a freebie, who would win in an OpenOffice vs MS Office 2007 face-off? "Ah, a great religious question!" exclaims Paul C. Williams, senior software engineer at LexisNexis Examen. "Honestly, either is equivalent for most any purpose." We shall see, grasshoppers, we shall see.

We did a pilot in our organization between Open Office and MS Office 2003.
The biggest problem in my view is how long OO takes to open up a document. It's ten times slower than MS Office (say, 10+ seconds vs. 1 second)!

What should be done about UFOs?
World governments should cooperate to address a potential planetary threat.
The DoD should investigate -- they could signal a hostile nation's tech advances.
The government should reveal what it already knows.
The government probably has good reasons for secrecy and should be trusted on this.
Wealthy corporate space-age visionaries should take the lead.
Nothing. Studying UFOs is a waste of resources.
Keep the stories coming. People love conspiracy theories, and it's fun to speculate.
