Comment Why we use office (Score 1) 178 178

Put simply, its still the best thing going, FOSS Office is great for basic tasks, the best solution I have found is to use both, task dependent, being able to span ODF documents across platforms would be great. The availability of FOSS Office on a ram stick is its greatest feature, one that Microsoft has never attempted to emulate.

Comment Rules for aircraft are much stricter (Score 5, Interesting) 203 203

You can drive with a bent fender, but if you bend an aircraft it is instantly grounded until repaired, this may entail x-raying the superstructure etc. So a small bingle in a flying car means it instantly becomes just a car until repaired and approved for flight. Personally I cant see flying cars becoming a reality any time soon.
