Open office issues

Rin Kagamine
Dear Open Office team,
Before reading this e-mail you should know that English is not my first
language, but I still hope you understand what I'm writing.
First of all, I'm genuinely angry at Open Office.
I've worked with it a few times now and it's always the same: The program
just suddenly crashes and absolutely EVERYTHING is gone! Hours of work for
nothing!
I made a PowerPoint presentation, it went horribly wrong. Other students
made their PPP in about three hours, mine took more than twice the time
since I had to deal with a constantly crashing program. It wasn't strong
enough to keep the pictures I added and I always had to put each and every
single picture back in place every time the program crashed.
Yes, I did save the presentation every 5 minutes.
Yes, the pictures were my very own and not just links.
I saved the presentation with all its pictures - crash - they were gone.
Recently, I had to write an essay. I wrote round about 12 pages when the
program crashed. Luckily, I had saved it. The problem was the program
wouldn't let me open my saved file. I wrote 12 pages about a scientific
study. 12 pages of hard work, hours and hours of TORTURE. And for what? For
nothing. FOR NOTHING, dear Open Office team. I'm so mad I could cry.
I will uninstall OP and recommend all of my friends not to use it
(especially as I've heard some of them say they had experienced the same
problems with your program). Thanks for making my life harder. I think I'll
be better off using an expensive program which actually works.
Sincerely,
Nina
