Last year, I accidently erased Win10 in an attempt to create a dual
boot with Mint 18. It was totally my fault. Now, I'm kind of glad I
did it. So far I haven't missed it.

I would love to get it verified, but it would be a good marketing

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
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.
