    Anyone tried to install that version? Two attempts this evening "failed" due to its insistance I shut down Exploiter, etc. I don't recall that being required during the install of 2.4.

    I've compiled it on my PC, and its running just fine.. (Linux)... I've not tried installing the Windoze version.

    ^ same.... Although even OpenOffice is too bloated for my taste. abiword and gnumeric have been good enough for me :)

    Not yet, just downloaded OO 2.4 for my Ubuntu desktops and Xubuntu for my laptops.

    Love it and it's free.

    Why pay for that Microsoft stuff???????:steamed:

    Yes and it seemed to install well. AVG8 identified two files as a threat though. Using XP SP3 Home Edition.
