Good Evening Mr. Hart,

I take acception to your statement.
If not for Microsoft (MS) /WE/ wouldn't be here.
I started out on an Apple IIe, but it couldn't run AutoCad, next was an 
Amiga in the 80s and an infant TurboCad which at the time was Open 
source. The Amiga disappeared (a German graphics company bought it out) 
and again I was orphaned (couldn't upgrade,too expensive for me).  I 
switched to Microsoft's PC. and I'll stay with it. Do I have complaints 
sure, but I'm comfortable with the system and the hardware. I earn a 
living with Microsoft.

I have had no problems with an install of AOO 3.4 over Ooo 3.3. I also 
deleted Libre OO I no longer needed it. I installed LO because my 
original Ooo 3.3 needed updating and I was confused about which one was 
the real Open Office.
I kept wondering until I tripped over a Google search and found both the 
correct Open Office and this forum.

Take Care.
College Park, MD USA
