[linux-elitists] What's some marketing buzzwords for what we do?

I may have a bit of a masochistic streak, but I have used an old
pentium computer with about 50 Bogomips to run Staroffice 5.2 since
it's release a couple years ago. I have had no problems creating
thousands of RTF docs and reading most Word docs. Even with my
obvious tolerance for pain, I really can't see a day soon when I can
get rid of MS software. There are the few times you need MS Office,
but sometimes you really need IE, too.
