Message to Sun from a SO8 User

Postby iFix.au » Wed Apr 09, 2008 6:29 am

Hi all,

As a long time user of Star Office 7 and 8 I have finally un-installed it and thrown it in the bin, disks, manuals and all.

This is because of frequent bugs during editing complex documents and spreadsheets.

I now rely on OO ;)

The reason for my message [if Sun looks here] is that I tried for several days to access the SO8 patches that I am eligible for and
was notified of by email with links.

Even using SDM [download manager] the link would not work and the patch failed many times at about 30 to 85% of download, so I gave up and installed OO.

Any wonder when it costs $150/Gb to download by Wireless in Australia.
