not. If you used OpenOffice before you can include your usage data as well.

Do you use the quick starter?


I always turn the damn thing off, and it annoys me that the "quick starter" (aka needlessly-slow-down-my-PC-startup-time) is still ON by default. No application should be so arrogant as to start-up with the OS per default. You don't know what apps the users *typically* uses (I browse and play RAM-hungry games). I can't (well, it's OSS, so I can) believe this dreaded default hasn't been turned off by now.

Mozilla/Firefox also experimented with a quick starter for a while, and fortunately abolished the horrid idea.

It seems OO (and LO even more so) still hasn't understood the REAL reason why people overwhelmingly choose non-OSS software (Firefox being the *exception*): Usability, and a rational understanding what a regular user *really* is (clue: it's not you).
