All praise but for one thing : a newcomer without too much technical background may have a difficult time understanding "mirror sites" and other stuff. In more constructive words : might it be possible to coach people to their solution (e.g. a Dutch language version of Open Office that fits their OS) in a more simple way, starting from the "receiver" and not the "sender" of the info ? Apart from that, I was also a wee bit disappointed by the Neo Office interface feeling so "pc" instead of "mac", but that's just a minor, nay petty detail amidst my praise to all you Open Sourcers... Sail on ye !

Didn't you already cross-post about NeoOffice 1.2 looking too Windowsy? Please read my response to your post there.

Be careful, Uzine Wink As someone with quite a bit of experience of "volunteer" organisations - of which open source software tends to form one grouping - it strikes me that when someone here makes a suggestion, they often end up volunteering to do it! This usually happens when they realise that they are not dealing with a mega-corporation with hundreds or thousands of paid employees to take up their helpful suggestions. There are to my knowledge only two people who receive any form of income [or is it one?] via NeoOffice, and that would probably amount to what Bill Gates "earns" in his coffee break [What's that? Oh, Bill's on permanent coffee break now? Well, you know what I mean, it's three-quarters of a pittance]

Anyway, welcome Uzine. I hope we can use your skills here. Smile

Peter
