Thats a yes and no situation. None of the artwork examples that many
megabytes of that come with OO, do not come with LO for copyright reasons.
And despite that I still like LO better, I have now tried to dl the latest
update 7 times, 6 of those made it to something north of 208 megs and
stalled, and once only to about 30 megs. I have no clue how many megs the
tarball actually is, oly that if I rename it so a tar session can unpack
it, the tarball is incomplete.
I am tempted to think that it stalls if you do not make a donation from
that same screen, and I am not the least allergic to supporting the
project, but I don't buy a 3 legged pig in a poke.
Cheers, Gene Heskett
