Hi all !
I would like to find an alternative to OpenOffice on Linux, as it is yet not fully MS Office compatible. I looked a several solutions for Linux, and this suite seems to be what I need, but as I don't know this product, I have a few questions :
- For those using both OpenOffice and SoftMaker Office, could you please tell me how SoftMaker Office performs, and if the documents saved from SoftMaker Office will be correctly displayed under MS Office (they don't look good under MS Office once they are modified in OpenOffice/Linux. I don't know if this is a font issue)
- Is SoftMaker Office able to correctly open OpenOffice documents (Writer, OpenCalc and Impress) ?
- Does this suite have a French GUI, or only German/English GUI ?
- I will receive soon a HP Netbook (HP Mini 2102, 10,1 inch screen) preloaded with SuSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11. Does this suite work well with this distribution, and does anybody know how well SoftMaker will fit in such a small notebook ? No display size issue ?
I consider purchasing this product once I am sure it will fit my needs. If I am doing so, I am writing some Reviews/Tests articles for a French WebSite (specialized on OpenSuSE/SuSE Linux). I may write a review of SoftMaker as this suite is not really well known in France (my review can be either negative or positive).
