am using LibreOffice 18.104.22.168 on my Ubuntu netbook now – and was astonished to see that autocorrection of two capitals at the start of the world has been enabled by default! Together with me finally being able to make Russian spellchecking work – wow, the Document Foundation, I’m fully your man now! I can not haz ur macros and tables, am just a chimp typing the complete works of Shakespeare, or at least comments on it, so a good processing power for a wall of words is all I probably need. Funny that they didn’t enable several very simple things before, neither during the Sun years or at Oracle.
Must needs go on with the translation, though. History beckons.
update: Also tried Firefox 4.0 today. Works very fast indeed, am waiting for a tab to freeze to check if they are really sandboxed separately. 3/4 of my addons don’t work, though, but I hope it’s just a matter of time. But ah, the great great feeling of an early adopter (well, within the first coupla millions I reckon) and an occasional click to report to Mozilla, and a word occasionally dropped in that I was there before you were there… Why yes, a titillating position so low on the curve, expecting the tide will rise high and the select company of technogeeks will ride the tide.
I think there’s a lesson there for all of us.
