It was for a Windows user. He's not a likely convert for Linux. My experience in installing is on the Linux/BSD side, so it didn't really occur to me that someone would bundle a bunch of crap with the Windows version of Libreoffice. I'll watch for that in the future.

Sure, guilty, but I've decided to cut myself some slack over it.
By "Mindows" I meant "Windows". The spellchecker on my PC quit working for some reason. And for some strange reason it appears the keydoarb has been rewapped.
To fix all these problems Mindows users can just download ZoomFixMyComputer from Craptastic.com.
The first 5 days is free. After that a low monthly subscription price of $99 will assure that your computer is safe and as efficient as it was they day you took it out of the box.
I can witness on open source not being immune. I recommended Libreoffice to a novice PC user recently. I don't know from where he downloaded the installer, but when he finished he had some redundant anti-virus programs, and another program that reset the home page of his web browser and wouldn't let him change it back.

The old Slashdot's still around. It's called SoylentNews now.
Actually, Galileo backed down at the end. He learned an important lesson. Never underestimate how frightened religious people are of their gods, prophets, clergy, etc. They would never say anything irreverent about any of their religious icons or deities. They are frightened that they will be held accountable for allowing anyone else in the world for disrespecting what they fear. Even today, there are people who would burn you at the stake or stone you to death for saying that Jesus was not the Messiah, or that Muhammad was not a prophet, etc.
They will react with real hostility to the notion that "Your sacred cow makes great hamburger".
Well my comment was sort of tongue-in-cheek. I just realized the actual event was in Scotland. Well, they could apply for statehood too I suppose.
Yes, amendments can be amended. But the 1st has been holding up nicely since 1791. We reserve the right to say offensive things because speech that isn't offensive to anyone doesn't need protection.
Lately, we seem to be having trouble keeping our 4th amendment. Some of us were hoping the world would notice and point it out, in the same way that you'd point out that your friend had a nasty bit of spinach in his teeth.
If England is ever going to be accepted as a state they'll have to learn to respect the first amendment rights of citizens. Oh, and while we're at it, they should be citizens not subjects. Drop the monarch.

More likely wrecked by a typhoon, at which time, I'm sure all these Randian Galt Atlases will cry for public assistance to save their sorry asses.
It will empower us. And by "us" we mean we in the 1% who will use it to further entrench our power over you, the little people.
If the problem was not being able to disable "tap-to-click", I had a similar problem. Eventually I stumbled onto a solution. I stopped messing with the synaptics driver and added 'moused_flags="-m 11=4"' to my rc.conf and let the touchpad be recognized as a PS/2. Voila, no more "tap-to-click".
"Really? They think people will be too interested playing Fruit Loop, or whatever it's called, to bother attempting to escape from an flaming aircraft?"
Yes really. In 1980 in Las Vegas, Nevada, people were to interested in playing the slot machine in front of them to bother escaping from the MGM fire. Quite a few of them died.
If the plane goes down in water your seat cushion will function as a suppository.
