Subject Re: Open Office Writer UTTER , UTTER Rubbish (or not)
Date Sun, 13 Mar 2016 14:05:21 GMT

even a software developer (which you claim to be) may occasionally have 
to repair a software installation, and that can happen with MS products 
too. not just with OpenOffice. Deleting the Openoffice folder in AppData 
doesn't take long and isn't a pain. It's done in 10 seconds. And don't 
tell me you haven't got 10 seconds to spare! And: You DO NOT need to 
re-create the profile because it's done automatically when you re-start 
OpenOffice after you deleted or renamed the old user profile. You know, 
most people DO try to solve problems with their software (and usually 
succeed) instead of periodically insulting the developers for, as you 
allege, "inferior" software. You did this in 2014, you did it again in 
2015, and you are doing it once again right now in 2016. I wonder about 
your actual purpose. Anyway, no one is forcing you to use OpenOffice.
