    office 97 all over again

    having read and worked through an office 97 book, the staroffice for linux book was just about as challenging. the book will make you a believer that great software can be free. almost every example worked, but i might have downloaded some examples from the author's wevsite if i knew where it was. i wish there was a sequel for the advanced techniques it didn't cover. oh well back to the documentation!
