Just a quick browsing of your computing habits. :lol:

Basically, the question is; what are the programs you use most (consciously) day-to-day.

My top five would be:
1) IE9
2) MS Office
3) VirtualBox
4) Download Accelerator Plus
5) CCleaner

:drinks:

FYI:
I am trying to find a (reliable) trial version of Cassocks to download. Looks to be rather entertaining.
Also gonna give Orbit a try. Never heard of it and want to compare it with what I am using now. Same with SlimBrowser - gotta try it.
Furthermore; it would seem that OpenOffice GO-OO is being replaced/merged with/into LibreOffice. I like the UI of LibreOffice and I love supporting open-source material.
Thanks for giving me some fiddlin' material. :)

I know about the incorporation of GO-OO into LibreOffice, just don't see the point of updating yet.

Nice article on the split here .

Bugger! I thought Cossacks was a war game! Must have missed something in the translation. :lol:
In my mid-20s I did want to join a monastery. Does that count? :rolleyes:

It was an error in translation, then. I shall repent forthwith. :devil:

Question for anyone who has installed LibreOffice:
Is it a resourse hog as OO.o used to be? I used to use OO.o but it was a hungry bugger.

Edit:
I like Orbit. I'll play with it a while and may replace DAP. Very user friendly prog. Thanks, Boris.
I likey pickin' the mind of seasoned pros. :0

LibreOffice runs well. I had questioned the resource consumption of it compared to OOo in a thread but couldn't find it. LibreOffice actually appears to be quicker than M$; and doen't kill memory. Havn't had time to test all of its abilities or on other OS other than Win 7, but I like it.

LibreOffice runs well.

I had LibreOffice since I got my new Windows 7 system this last summer; I thought LO may be a good alternative to Microsoft Office.

However, I finally uninstalled it last week after the latest version 3.4.4 still does not support Java 7. There are several other things I was not happy with in LibreOffice, e.g. Calc does not fully support Excel macros, or Base does not support SQL Outer Join. Or documents created with Writer have a completely different layout when opened with Microsoft Word. etc.

I have now installed Office 2010, and everything works as expected.

Just out of curiosity: onyone using OpenOffice? If so, does it work with Java 7? (I would expect so, since both Java and OO now belong to Oracle.)
