Hi Paolo, and... NO. Not the software. They use programmed
obsolescence for the FILE FORMAT, see
why don't they change ? they don't know enough about LibreOffice;
they would need demonstrations or some training
training to learn the different position of the same buttons and
functions is a waste of money, it's a shame that it is still
considered an option. The real training should be in other areas,
regardless of what software is used, see the post above.
other software producers (autodesk) are doing similar things...
schools are good marketing targets... ideas?
let's not waste other years promoting software before common formats.
Apart from that, thanks for mentioning Autodesk, excellent example of
the fact that MS is neither the only, nor the worst player of the
"proprietary format" game. THat is a very general issue.
