| imagine that finding your files will only 
| become trickier over time.

,----[ Quote ]
| An office suite is a collection of related
| software for business and other uses. The
| software is distributed together in a single
| package, with a consistent graphical
| interface, and with strong interaction
| between the different components.
| The types of software included in an office
| suite typically consist of word processing,
| spreadsheets, presentations, database and
| much more. For many users the office suite
| (together with a web browser and email
| client) represents the cornerstone of their
| computing day. A high quality office suite is
| therefore a necessity for any computing
| platform.
