I would love to get it verified, but it would be a good marketing coo
for LO if a big company like Canon uses LibreOffice.
I used to work for a company that used OpenOffice (this was before
LibreOffice was available).  I suspect the only reason they did was
because they were so d@mn cheap, they wouldn't pay for MS Office.  ;)

Well cheap or not, it is nice to have as many big companies using LibreOffice as possible.

I bet there are a lot of people out there, and on these lists, that are using LO not because of being "cheap". It is nice to have a free office suite but I prefer LO over MS Office. Just like I prefer to use Linux over Win10 because of all of the viruses and other nasties that Windows have, while Linux do not have these things infect their systems.

And the suggestion that the latest crypt virus may have been introduced to computers through a document macro makes me more comfortable using LO without MSO on any win PCs.

Well, if you look at the CNN Headline News, they have stated that MS has a patch for this virus, but wanted to charge some users for it. The on-air comment seems to say that since MS had the patch, they should have sent it out to ALL MS Windows users. Plus, it the patch was installed, most computers would not have been infected.

Fro me, I use Linux so I do not have the security problems as MS Windows users. I do have Win10, but rarely use it. Most times I just go to the Win 10 partition to run the update app.
