Free your mind...

No, not a reference to the Democratic and Republican conferences these past few weeks. Although I think...

Wait, off topic. So I have found that people are reluctant to change. No news there. Not talking politics but it still applies. I have a customer whose wife was unknowingly using OpenOffice for a while. When reminded she grabbed for what she knew. I can only use MS Office. But do you really MS Office ? Maybe not. What follows is an excerpt from the email sent to me...

I came home last night and my wife was doing class work, and I asked her if she was having any problems and how the program was working for her. She said she wasn't having any problems. Then I let her know that when I rebuilt her PC I couldn't find her MS Office CDs, so I installed Open Office instead. With a little shocked and exhaspirated voice she said, "Whaaat? I have to have Microsoft Office...." I responded "Have you noticed that you weren't using it?"... she said "Oh, Shut up." and she went back to work.

Maybe not. Free your mind, try something new. You may like it.
