I just tried applixware and star office an a P150/32meg ram and built in 2
meg vidio. Staroffice is a complete system hog. SLOOOOW , even slower with
KDE. I removed it and am using applixware. I runs nicely with xfce and I
like the fact that is has sql ability. Hopefullyu I can use it with
postgress for minor database apps.
I couldent get wordperfect to print in coler , something with the s rptint
drivers and pass throgh postscript not suporting color. every tthing
esleprints in color.
This is the first machine for office use that is soly rung linux. no
windows ( I allready ahve a fileserver and anm still tring to get the
firewall working). So the good news is that we oo are also weaning
ourselofs off of M$. It just take time and applications. Cant wait for
Wordperfect Office. That I cant wait to try out.
