Re: Miguel de Icaza set to embrace .NET

    In my experience , by the time these apps arrive, a newer version of office
comes into picture with incompatible (and bloated) files format that the previous
versions which the apps do not support(yet).  My point is why not allow  specs to
be public so that everyone can view the files created by your product. Adobe does
tha same with it's PDF  softwares. It gived reader for free while if you have to
create, buy the product. Thus I can use ggv/xpdf to view the files easily...

However, could you please suggest a few, so that I can delete the remaining single
windoze partition( wasted 1GB /20 GB HDD) from my pc and use it for something

PS: Even my dad now use Linux ... and he has just started learning/using computer a
few months back.
