I have noticed that OpenOffice 1.0 (Windows version) will sometimes crash
when opening a Word document if you do it by double-clicking on the filename
in Windows Explorer.  But, if you open the Word document from the File->Open
dialog it works OK.

Could be a file association problem?

If you feel like paying for software, you could try StarOffice from Sun
Microsystems.  It's the paid version of OpenOffice, and I think it also
comes with a database program (OpenOffice doesn't).

Haven't seen the 3D tool.

Did someone on this list say they used Protel 99SE on Linux with Win4Lin?
How is that working for you?  Any bugs, undocumented "features", or quirks?
