Reading through a forum on http://www.arstechnica.com and ran into the following snippet of conversation . . .



Yet the question remains: does the world need another open source Office suite? Productive would raise the total to at least four (including OpenOffice, KOffice, and Gnome Office--I'm sure there's more).

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Yes, we do need another one. Until we have an open-source program that can do everything that Bill's stuff can do, we need more.

No flames, please. Just my cranky irresponsible opinion.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

BUT this is a case of too many kitchens... forget about too many cooks. Why have 5 "almost as good as M$ office" projects when they should really be aiming now for one "as good, if not better"? 5 dogs with 3 legs each can't catch the dog with all 4, see?

Now is the time when someone marches in to let the world know that StarOffice kicks the shit out of M$ Office. Uh huh, sure.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Five three-legged dogs is better than four three-legged dogs. If they're smart, they'll learn to work together...

...and eventually merge to become a fifteen-legged canine demigod?

it all still hurts, you know.

rejection. pain. loneliness.

and I can't shake feeling like it'll happen again. because I've been here before. "It's okay. It'll all be better now. She cares about me. She loves me. It'll all be better now." And it isn't. and I get torn apart (again) and left behind (again) and forgotten about (again) and it never gets any better.

and there's nothing anybody can do about it.

maybe in two years. maybe if we're still together, maybe if it really has gotten better. maybe if I'm happy.

but I just can't believe anymore.

not now.
