As for your OpenOffice document fiasco, you simply saved it in the

formats with each iteration. I hope realize that you
don't have to pay $300 for Word, when OpenOffice is perfectly
capable. I haven't run into anything that OpenOffice couldn't do
that Word could do (that I need to use). Hell I did my PowerPoint
in whatever OO calls it. If you use something thats outside
of OO's capabilities, then go ahead and use Word... Better yet
why don't you pop WINE onto a Linux box and use Word.
You complain that linux has few settings for files, well this simply leads
to the simplicity and removes user error (all files are read only until
marked as executable). If you can't figure out how to use GNOME,
then... well... someone hand this man the Darwin award.
I game on Windows because there is no support for Linux
(Ever since Loki went out of business I don't argue that)
I game on my 360 (yes M$), I love it.
I work in Linux (with the exception that at work they REQUIRE us
to use Visual Basic.... friggin morons, I even told them about RealBasic

Final case in point: Linux is made by people... Not corporations.
That is key. I can command the destiny of my OS, and see what

So for me though:
I don't need to pay $300 for Word. (I don't know the price and don't care,
all I do know is that it's overpriced for an exaggerated WordPad).
Don't need Multi-user domain. Remote desktop: ehhhh, don't want it.
Web browser apps = Clunky & Useless (Have you found one worth using?
Me neither). GUI: gah-no-mmm.
WOOT FLAMEWAR ACTIVATE!
