Well, most things are on the web nowadays & its only because of a very few games or apps that we are still stuck with Windows. Otherwise, I personally would have moved to Linux a while back (My laptop that is)...

Because people started using/learnt pc using windows and I too find Ubuntu bit complicated compared to it. And most important you can find tones of app for Windows either legal, free or pirated.

well my question was more like. why do people pirate microsoft office when they have free alternatives like libreoffice which offer all the functionality they need in an office suite? :)

I find libreoffice and open office full of bugs.. Use excel, apply some formulas and you will know how life is easier with MS.

Hmm.... depends on up to what level you use. If you do office work at home, then yes, MS-Office is better, otherwise for basic stuff, I have found them to be sufficient. I use it less, but I have LibreOffice in my laptop.

Ok try to format cell with datetime, apply some diff datetime format, share the result. Place two date values in two different cells, get the difference in 3rd cell. If you still wont find the bugs and difference between ms and open , i will upload a excel sheet with data, try same data on open office.

my dad and an uncle. never have used office really. they can make sense out of google docs just fine.

i actually do use google docs for the little spreadsheet work i need to do sometimes. excel/calc just feel too complicated for my needs.

i do not like google documents much because it does not handle grammar search well. also it is annoying to use on a widescreen display as i cannot resize the page. resizing the tab resizes everything :D

again. this is not the kind of stuff a regular person would do. i am talking about people who mostly use these apps for 'reading documents' or at max writing some applications or letters etc. :)

Bro, excel is meant to be used for calculations, isn't it? Be a normal user or advance excel user.

You know one of the reason my dad uses Excel for? To prepare ration list to be given to the grocery store :D
