I have recently downloaded LibreOffice for Windows, and soon will
install it on one of my machines.
If all goes well, I will then extend it to the others, and into Linux
(Fedora 13 i386 and Fedora 14 x-86_64)
Since I have a lot of hardware peripherals connected, this should
produce some interesting observations over time.
I speak, read and write English, French (almost as well) and Spanish
to a lesser degree, and I find languages, linguistics and cultural
analysis a lot of fun, but I am also obliged to spread myself thinner
than I would really like for economic reasons, and that may be the
biggest limiting factor.
I installed the Windows version [all languages] to my Vista Laptop to
test out some of the Windows setup options. I think the "multi
language" version [smaller file size] may be the route to go if you are
just wanting English [default] and French. I did have to go an do the
"custom install" to pick my languages that I wanted to add, other than
the default English install. I wanted to try 5 or more languages to see
how that works.
Under "Tools/Language" option you can set the language of your text.
What you do to change the language of the menus is something I have not
tried, since I speak English and not any other language.
The only issue I had was the fact that you needed to know that for
multiple languages [for at lease the all language version] in your
initial install, you have to use the "custom" install option[s]. Other
than that, it worked great. I wish MSO was as easy, from what it was
like for MSO 2003 pro version. The ease of install and setup is one of
my things I tell people about. It is much easier to install than . . . . .
