Message 1907767 - Posted: 17 Dec 2017, 21:31:31 UTC - in response to Message 1907748.  

I have divorced myself from as many M$ apps as possible. I prefer Open Office, Firefox and other software over anything the girls and boys in Redmond offer.

Amazed here at how much better FF 57 is over previous FF 56, and any version FF beats M$ browsers.
As for Open Office, it's ok, though Calc is pretty weak and clunky compared to Excel for power users. Half the stuff I used to do on Excel either can't be done or take twice the effort on Calc. Talking specifically about the setup and formatting tools, and their ease of use.

Yep!

My only M$ software is the OS: Win7 Pro 64bit. That's only because it's a pain in the you-know-what to try to get Windoze programs to run in Wine on Linux.

I swear by Firefox. Started using it when it first came out and haven't looked back. Oh, I have tried others: Opera, Chrome (hate it with a passion), that browser put out by Apple (cannot remember it's name), and when I tried Win10 I tried Edge. Back to Win7 and Firefox I went.

Agree, FF latest is a vast improvement in speed and a world above Exploder. My desktops both run Window$ 8.1 with little problem except 'Mail', what a useless P.O.S. I have to log into Outlook to save or send images and half the time I get a "XXX@msn is currently unavailable" when I'm just dumping my junk mail. I also have email through Gmail and Xfinity but each have other problems.

And the latest and greatest 'Creator$ Update' has rendered the stylus on my $urface Tablet inoperative in Firefox.
Probably another wrench thrown into the workings of Mozilla by the boy$ and girl$ in Redmond.....
ALL HAIL MICRO$OFT!

Hey JE,

Don't you know? Micro$oft can do as they damn well please since they are answerable to no one. Contrary to them putting out security updates, they don't care about us little people. They are above ALL on this ball of rock called Earth. Window$ 10 and their revised EULA, taking away our freedom to use Class Actions, did that for them.
