Just a wee note of clarification hereabouts; I am a very keen WordPerfect user.
Yes, it is now somewhat legendary, how the original WordPerfect people, that
Mormon crowd, screwed up big time when they released a GUI version and then of
course, the Borg got stuck in with FUD & Word_for-BORG & that was that until
Corel picked up the ball and are still runing with it @ some speed.

I must say too, that Star Office is supposed to be ok, but I am a WordPerfect
guy so, I have been using the Freeware version & am hanging out for the Full
Office Suite!

Now, back to trying to find a free mirror to down load XFree86-4. They were all
rather crowded last night & I can not thing why.... ;-)

Happy Geeking.

Greek Geek :-)
