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 best describes your attitude toward social networks and politics?
The value of engaging in serious political discourse outweighs the negatives.
Most of the political conversations seem overheated and ignorant.
Social networks provide a lot of very good political information from reliable sources.
Almost every political post I see is skewed or totally fake.
Political interactions on social networks simply mirror those in the real world.
Social networks remove inhibitions, bringing out the worst in people and politics.
