See LibreOffice 5.0.4 is available for downloadYes, most of us need an office suite, but we don’t need a bunch of restrictions on its use designed to enrich the supplier far beyond normal profits of business. That’s a bunch of good reasons to use Free/Libre Open Source Software. If you have that source code you are no one’s slave. You can have confidence that the software is working for you and not against you. You can even tweak it if you want. Just remember to share. The world can and does make its own software. LibreOffice 5 is a great office suite. Give it a try. Many million have and it works for them.

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. Now that I'm retired I still use GNU/Linux on every computer in my home except the smartphones which run Android/Linux.
Lately, I've been giving lots of thought to the world I inherited and which I will leave to my descendants. I'm planting grass, trees, flowers and vegetables in my large lot and I've ordered a Solo EV. I plan to charge my Solo by means of a tracking solar array. Life is good if you have a purpose. I do.
