Like I said: crude and unreliable.

Just that  my kids (one with Win 7, the other with Mac 10.4) and I on 
Mac 10.6 have had sudden crashes
with LibreOffice, and since installing OpenOffice instead have not.

In your situation I would not get too worked up about my rather limited 
data.

I hoped that my posting would elicit an "outpouring" of many people's 
expereince with Free Office Suites
rather than sending you off into a horrible panic.

Indeed I am extremely sorry if my posting has upset you; it wasn't meant 
to do that.

Richmond.
