When do you think I should switch from IBM/Lotus Word Pro, 1-2-3, Approach, and the rest of SmartSuite, which, although old, runs on my Windows 9-um (unmentionably pre-98) platform just fine and lets me get my work done, to OpenOffice.org Writer, Calc, and the rest of that Linux- and 98-platformed suite, which has the same good quality and ability to support my work (except for the database which requires JavaScript which crashed my machine when I tried installing JS)?

Maybe I don't need to switch for many years yet to come. I also have Lotus on 98SE, so if I had to upgrade to 98SE (already running but I don't do much Lotus/OOo work on it but could) I could recover files from a backup.

Should I have angst about this? Feel free to call me on my tin can and string, as soon as I attach a string at both ends.

Best wishes.

If your existing software is working for you, then I don't think you should switch. But for people who have no existing software, or for those who want to switch, I do recommend OpenOffice.org. Scott.
