       Yes, the '03 worked and I enjoyed using that for that reason;
              I can no longer use it because MSFT only allows a certain
number of computers - so when the HD died on the last one, so did my access
to '03  ???

       Obviously, MSFT knows that computers' HDs die so why is there a
limited number of times to download the program ??? -
              obviously MSFT is more greedy than caring  ;-(

       So with this new computer, I plan to ONLY use those programs which
will be transferable if and when I ever have another HD die ...
               starting over is no fun  ;-)

       Ok, I admit, I liked OO then LO for some things -
             and I liked the MSFT program for some things  ;-)

Quite a lot of interesting discussions about the possibility of looking at
2 documents the same time.

I was especially surprised that this very nice feature will be gone in MSO
2013. Luckily I use LibO only thus cannot feel cheated by MS when this
feature is gone after I purchased an expensive upgrade.

As a reference, one can just look at MSO 2003. There I used this feature
mainly for word documents of the same language or with different languages.
I could scroll both documents synchronized or separately. All in one big
but split window. I used this for many years until I switched to LibO.

I think it doesn't need complicated programming and I also feel that it
could be applied to all elements of LibO the same way. (Be careful I not a
dev and don't have dev knowledge; its just my feeling.)

If someone is interested in more details, let me know, I will fire up my
old PC where there is still MSO 2003 installed and look at the details.
