Re: enough of the trolling .. @Eadon 13:35
"@MartinHatch your argument seems to be, X is ok if google and apple do it. That's not a good reason."
- I think he's pointing out you don't criticise Google and Apple for the same thing. The former isn't surprising as you strike me as a major Android fan.
" "You don't have to do that" - I already addressed that objection. "
- Not effectively - "I don't like the default set that way" is a personal opinion and will vary with the user.
" "feature parity" - Libre office has enough features for most people, more than enough, in fact. And some of it's features are better - open document formats, open source, free, no ribbon, no Metro-esque UI, less bloat, etc."
- Free is a compelling argument for stuff. Open source in itself isn't an argument for quality. Open document formats is nice. No ribbon? So what? Interesting how the people who are most vehement about the ribbon are generally those who are anti-MS anyway, so that argument has to be taken with a pinch of salt, like the Metro one. You see a new interface and you're determined to hate it rather than put some effort into learning it. Personally I had no trouble with the ribbon, and I've only had a brief look at Windows 8. Less bloat? Bloat is another tired argument people use for things they don't want/need, without regard for whether others might.
"And you didn't know that LibreOffice supports Macro's? Or are you lying?"
- Nope. Looks to me like like the concern is whether LO/OO is compatible with MS Office macros. That is a concern for some people who have documents making use of them. Don't know whether you regard that compatibility as relevant, but if you don't you're ignoring end user requirements, which isn't very professional. Certainly no reason to being lying into it. As a couple of digs (a) Why did you capitalise macros, which isn't a proper noun, and not Apple and Google? Is it some kind of attempt to insult Apple and Google? Childish, if so. (b) "Macro's" - really? Grocer's Apostrophe from someone trying to appear knowledgeable in the document creation field? Tut tut ...
"That corporates can change the default is no excuse for a dodgy default."
- It's not dodgy. You just think everything should be according to *your* specs alone. You complain that the effort to change it is required, but you're putting more effort into the complaint.
Sorry to go on, but now and then I do have to point out that you're being a bit lame.
