I know this, and you know this, and it seems that many a Slashdot reader knows this. Regrettably, this is Texas - where many think that anybody who looks like they are from another country that is not Mexico is automatically a terrorist.

LibreOffice is the better Office clone.
(I don't understand why so many students torrent MSOffice when they could get LO legally for free.)
