To be honest, I get my work done with a simple text editor and a console-based e-mail client. I only load OpenOffice.org when people e-mail me important Word or Excel documents that need my attention.
All the same, while I never need to use Microsoft Office, I think the whole “you’re a dinosaur for not paying us lots of money to upgrade your software” campaign insulting. Has Microsoft got nothing to offer its long-time users beyond bullying? For shame, Microsoft!
Seriously, if the dinosaur stuff is getting to you, give OpenOffice.org a try before you surrender to Microsoft’s extortion campaign.
P.S. If you would like to borrow my stolen clip-art for making your own guerrilla marketing statement, you are welcome to my image templates, my text templates, and of course OpenOffice.org has a variety of web buttons.
