Should I switch from our Office '97 to LibreOffice? Many years ago, I used to be an avid command line text processor, specifically a Xywrite user. This may have been before some of you were born, i.e. 1985 etc. Then I was forced by a company I worked for, to use MS-Word and I hated it. Specifically, because I had customized XyWrite to be many times faster than any of today's CAT tools. My keyboard had up to 9 levels of key assignments. No mousing.
