Well--! In the "careful what you wish for" department ....

I found a copy of Star Office (not sure which version) on a computer I
was using for a class, and started the program.

Didn't get a chance to really play with it, but ... let's just say
these guys aren't likely to win any awards for their GUI.
Non-standard menus, less-than-intuitive ... yuck.

This could be because I'm used to The Macintosh Way(tm) -- which even
Windows-folk are adopting, though most don't know it, but that
interface was ... disturbing. It looked like it would be difficult to
work with.

My $.000075 ....
