We've come a long, long way over the years... Check out the history of LibreOffice, OpenOffice(.org) and StarOffice on our timeline: https://www.libreoffice.org/about-us/libreoffice-timeline/ (Screenshot: Masterhit, CC-BY-SA, https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Starwriter_compact_2.png)
@libreoffice ahhhh, 1993. If someone offered me a time machine in return for all my worldly goods, I think I'd take it. No cellphones, no worries about how to get more than 9,999 music tracks to be played on Sync 3, no home Wi-Fi problems, no cameras everywhere, no license plate recognition systems... ahhhhh, I can almost smell it! 😊🙏
@libreoffice I think my fist contact with StarOffice was StarOffice 4.
Fun fact: in "The Tale of the Body Thief", the vampire Lestat de Lioncourt (the same from "Interview with the Vampire") used StarOffice (at least in the french translation).
