Re: [seul-edu] OSS for schools

hi... i think that wqe can work whit anything
platforms... othwerwise ms office, open office,
staroffice o kde office... i dont understand why
not... Ive have made print materials to use this
software and i think that is goog to have alternative.

So, we need to take care whit some forms or attributes
to files but for any other reason is good. I work whit
Open Office, MS Office and StarOffice under Linux and
share many files whit other co-workers under MS and
dont have much problems... salu2 manuel vargas
