When it can display XLS spreadsheets without locking up or crashing after inputing 2 fields, then It might have a chance for me.

It can.

It does.

If it crashed after two cells, I would certainly not be using it. Nor would my wife. Or my kids.

You may have a special spreadsheet, or the problem might be a corrupted install. Or a user issue.

What the hell is a ribbon :S I like my Word Processor to display letters when I type them in. And then save it into a file. OO does that fine thank you very much, I'm not as anal as some people regarding editing.

and why you need to be rude?

Because you dismissed OO just for the fact it doesn't have ribbon. So yeah, stop being anal about lack of ribbon and then you can demand people not to be rude to you.

still no ribbon... don't even deserve to try it

Not everything has to have the ribbon you know. It may look a little outdated but still a good alternative to MS Office. That is if they've added support for the .docx, etc formats.

And not everyone likes having a ribbon in a program (I for example hate the ribbon. So in my opinion 'Microsoft office' doesn't even deserve trying)

Openoffice 3 does supports the docx format.

The way it always supported .doc? I'd say "supports" then...

The "Ribbon" is a flawed piece of context navigation. Want an example? Where's the Save context block?
I love when people put **** in god tier and fail at it.

The specification was only made available (it's a trap, btw) as of last year, and in the most modern schema.

Well, Microsoft will not license the ribbon for products that compete with Office, so you'll never see the ribbon in OO unless they want to get sued.
