Re: Open Office ?

So I wonder if we have to consider open office viruses now on the VMS system. I would have to assume there would be macro code enabled on the OpenOffice suite.

Anyone know anything about this possibility? Or possibly allowing a system administrator to disable the macro coding by default?

Re: Open Office ?

Sorry - couldn't edit previous message. I didn't want to come off as bad mouthing open office. I use that on my home system. Its a little memory hungry and slower to load than office but its got the majority of the features I have learned to use from MS Office.
