I am thinking of developing commercial software to rival microsoft office. qiet clearly i cant do this alone i mean it would take like forever and ever so if anyone is interested lets get talking

I advice you to desist from this almost imposible task. And I am of the openion that you are not even aware of a fraction of the tremendous potentiality it offers for simple office management to very powerfull computing- options integrating small office to corporate bodies spread over miles apart.

I will explain it very bluntly.

Just open the excel and watch the eyes of the clippit. The whole world is visible in its eyes. Try entering things and again watch. In essence it is a teacher, a guide and an intimate associate ever ready to help enything in this world (ofcourse, computing).

You seem to be surprised?

Just watch what it does with its eyes and get back to me.

That's only one. There are eight assistants like that ready to guide you!

I am confident that along with you, so many in this thread reading this might have a feeling after experimenting, that they have missed so much things in the past, from these tiny creatures which we call as Gnomes.(Sessions). And I hope all of you will soon learn the language Gnomics.

I tell you this today, in the not so distant future you will be reading and hearing about the open software that you categorically didnt believe in.

Dear Kalitharenegede,

My intention was not to disappoint you.
See, we already have enough open software now. Especially, in the Linux platform. But truly, there is not even a single one, that comes near to the Microsoft Office. Have you tried the latest release? The functionality it offers is great!
Just get back to me.

regards
