1 I know this isn't really the Gentoo (read - Linux) way, but, since I'm using
2 this for business apps, I need to take the end users point of view for a
3 moment. Open Office or the "Ximianized" Open Office. I read that Ximian
4 was bought by Novell, so I'm wondering which of these two portage packages
5 to get. is no longer, apparently, so I'm wondering when this
6 will turn into a commercial (read - for sale) product.
7 I read that the ximianized version is faster to load and run, and I also
8 read that open office takes a long time to compile, so I'd hate to put the
9 Ximianized version together and then find out somewhere down the road that
10 I'd have to dump it and go to the other version. Any insight here is
11 greatly appreciated. I'm finally (after 3 days and nights) getting to the
12 end of having a "basic functioning laptop".
