When at home it is a case of using LO but when at work and school it is
a matter of using Mo as that is what everybody else uses.
I prefer to use LO for the simplicity that it has attached with it. I
remember being taught as a 5 year old to use MO 2003 and becoming quite
proficient in its use. Now as a High School Student I was forced to
crack MO for the first few years as I had no Knowledge of LO. Now since
I have made the switch I have not looked back as NZ now has severe
copyright laws in which I was breaching.
Long live Open Source!
