Windows users can run MS Office easily and for little money (if any).
Why should they use LibreOffice if all they want is cheap MS Office?
They can also run WordPerfect, Lotus Smartsuite, Abiword and a number of
other applications. Why should you be so anti Windows users running LO?
The cheapest version of MS Office in the UK is Home and Student and
costs about £75. The free version (Office Starter) is crippled adware
(and only contains Word and Excel anyway), and that only comes with a
machine that has a trial version of Office 2010 installed. You can't
download it from anywhere.
Surely it's better to get them running LO rather than a crippled version
of proprietary software? When I post in the MS Answers forums in reply
to certain questions I always suggest that if they can't afford to
upgrade to the latest Office version, that they have a look at LO. One
or two MVPs do this as well.
Once Windows users begin to realise that they don't NEED MS Office
products, then it's only a short step to not needing Windows at all. :-)
