    5-0 out of 5 stars 2 V. Ivanovskiy "Linux fan." : double quote key does work!
    """""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""
    I install it on my notebook Dell Inspiron 8200. Instalation was fine as usual. All hardware works at once except wireless card in WPA-PSK and 108 MB/s mode. To install native NVidia driver I have to read documentation, yast work is not enough. I was surprised when discover that double quote key doesn't work in US international keyboard layout in KDE. Also I cannot install/remove any software after initial instalation from Yast, it is not able to find DVD in my drive. Every application starts very very slow. Compare to my previous SuSE 8.2 I would not say this distributive is better but hardware support is good.
    """""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""

    Dell Latitude D400, SuSE 9.3, KDE 3.4, US International, double quote works :)

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Distro
    I find this version to be user friendly
    looks like good competition for windows
    Suse 9.3 Linux was very easy to install didn't take long at all
    was so nice to only have to put in one dvd to install all
    the software bundled on the dvd is excellent
    the packages are all current with lots ofapplications browsers, email clients etc to choose
    and with wine can run alot of windows programs if need to
    Novell also provides great tech support on the install if troubles

    4-0 out of 5 stars Advansys SCSI Cards Not Supported
    Buyers who have a system with an Advansys SCSI card should know that SUSE dropped support for these cards beginning with version 9.1.(Some kernel hackers claim there are problems with the driver, though mine, which controls a Yamaha CD burner and an Epson scanner, has always worked fine.)This was a great surprise to me, since the Advansys cards had been supported on many distributions through many versions.

    (The same thing happened with the Fedora spin off from the Red Hat distribution, but if I understood the discussion I found last night, the Advansys driver was restored, as of Core 3.)

    3-0 out of 5 stars Very friendly distributive but with serious bugs.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Superb Linux Distro
    Pros: Superb interface, very easy to use, full featured distro with over 2000 software applications, very good Yast control panel, excellent hardware support and security features. Top web browers Firefox and Conqueror with all plug-ins installed automatically. Blinded against viruses.

    Cons: A bit of a memory hog, 512mb memory recommended. Linux distros do not support a lot of webcams.

    I have been using Suse Pro for the past couple of years and their latest version is a gem. Sure it costs a bit more but what you get is the best Linux distro available. Very secure, Novell provides you with continous security updates. Excellent media support.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Be Careful About the "Full Functionality" Hype
    I'm a PhD student who needs Linux to access my advisor's on-campus cluster.I have a 3-yr-old Dell Dimension 4550 that has had trouble getting Linux to power all its drivers, particularly the media components.I've tried SUSE, Mandrake, and Fedora Core 3, each of which couldn't get my Soundblaster Live audio card to run along with some other media hardware.

    So when I read the reviews for Linspire 5.0, including the ones here at Amazon, I was quite pleased at the prospect of full functionality right out of the box.So I plopped down my $85 and Linspire 5.0 arrived in the mail two weeks later.But, boy, I was only in for more disappointment, a lot more in fact than the other Linux distributions I've tried.

    Linspire originally claimed their 5.0 could run SB Live audio cards, but that wasn't true.(They've since updated their claims on their website.)It turns out that 5.0 has just as much trouble getting SB Live to work as any other Linux distribution.My computer is still soundless, even after downloading all the updates from CNR's website and having Linspire redetect my hardware (and do its diagnostics on top of that).

    But not only that, the Macromedia Flash player that came with the Linspire installation is incredibly glitchy.This really wouldn't be a problem if it weren't for the fact that, for some reason, Linspire 5.0 always wants to boot its Flash-powered tutorial program every time I turn on my computer and log in.Before I ever get to see the desktop, the tutorial kicks in -- and then promptly freezes itself.Sometimes I can get it to turn off and go to the desktop, but most of the time it just sits there frozen no matter what I do.The only way out is to force my computer to hard crash by literally unplugging it.(This is quite remarkable to see happen for a Linux OS.)And there's no apparent way to turn off the tutorial to keep it from starting up every time I boot my machine.It's quite aggravating.Also, I've noticed that (when I can get past the silly tutorial) that Mozilla Firefox freezes up whenever I visit a website using Macromedia Flash.When this occurs, I have to kill the browser's window and restart Mozilla.

    Likewise, no media players work.Try to watch a Windows Media or Quicktime file off the web, and you get a blank screen.Put in a audio CD and no player will run it.(Even if the sound card doesn't work, the software player should still do something with a CD.)Put in a DVD and the computer quite literally has no idea what to do with it except show the DVD contents on a separate window.

    Basically, I'm no better off than when I was using the free distribution of Fedora Core 3.So I strongly recommend that you take the hype with a grain of salt and research for yourself whether or not Linspire 5.0 is good for your machine.

    But I try to look on the bright side.Maybe CNR will use my $85 to get their Linspire 5.0 to work some day. (-:

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great bundle: OS + lots of software
    Linspire is a great operating system, easy to use, yet powerful enough for all of your needs.And with the CNR subscription, you will have a one-click access to many programs.It can't get any easier than this.I've been using Linspire full time since January and I am sure there is no way I will ever go back to Windows.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Computering the way it was meant to be.
    This is a great Operating System.Linspire makes using a computer fun and enjoyable.With a Linux based system, you can surf the web and use email without fear of getting a virus or having to deal with spyware.Lsongs is perfect for listening to your mp3 collection.Lphoto manages your photo's.Linspire's CNR opens the door to more programs than you will know what to do with with a easy one-click installation.The tutorials are simple and concise.The support from Linspire is excellent.The on-line support of the forums is invaluable.

    I have been VERY happy with my Linspire Five-0 system.It is worth every penny!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Linspire rocks
    I am not sure anymore why I started looking at Linux years ago. OK, I had my problems with Windows like every one else that had to walk on there toes to keep it running clean form all the known "dangers" but did had a lot of fun in between ...
    My curiosity probably was the main reason to try Linux although I feel very much for the "freedom" policy behind Linux or as some say GNU/Linux.
    I had more problems then ever anticipated! It was hard to understand Linux, to cope with dependencies, permissions and to install "simple" things like drivers wasn't that easy for a beginner as well.
    Not giving up I tried several distro's (they ALL became better by the year btw!) until I ended up with then Lindows. That's where the fun started for me! What a ease.
    Since then I sticked with Linspire and ran all versions that followed. Version 4.5.603 was no less then a "rock" in terms of stability. Today's Five-O is just like that but has way more "eye-candy". Its also faster then its predecessor. Its a very modern Linux distro that comes with many latest apps. The "home breed" stuff like Linspire Internet Suite is not just a renamed Mozilla but more a "tailor cut" Mozilla, fine tuned for Linspire Five-O. Works simply great and is a beauty to look at.
    I love a lot of great programs available in Linspire's CNR but the absolute crown belongs with CNR itself. CNR makes Linspire standing out of the rest and the live of the users easy, very easy.
    My years long experience with Linspire has moreover proved that there's a massive effort to support any user, new or matured which I find very important. Then there's that very active, loaded with enthusiasts, user forum where first hand help is often around and simply brought on by more or less experienced users. Put your questions there and someone, in some cases even engineers or the CEO, will come up with a attempt to help. Nothing "Linux forum" comes close to this.
    In short, I am using Linspire "full time" and am very satisfied. I can recommend it to anyone, experienced or not.
    I will be there when the next great Linspire is released. For now this is the best and easiest one can get for the bucks involved.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Linspire The Operating System for Anyone
    Linspire is the easiest to use desktop operating system designed for the first-time user and provides seamless transition for those migrating from another operating system. CNR additionally is the simplest application installation client on the market. Truly one-click and you have the tool installed to complete your task. Functional in both the home and work environments. Give it a try and you'll be impressed... ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars So much +/- Half truths about this offering here!
    Ok. Bottom line. I came here to save money on Buying StarOffice7 after running the Beta.

    I cannot believe the half-truths in this thread. Please allow me to kill a few.

    1) It needs Java. BS. It asks if you have Java installed which is only required on a few advanced features (mostly database).

    2) Same a OpenOffice. BS. It is built ON OpenOffice which Sun supports. I have both options on my laptop (plus MS Word). StarOffice has things they license that is not in OpenOffice.
    A (much) better spell checker (even that is not as good as MS Word), Thesarus, and a SQL database (like a real SQL not a user friendly Access database).

    3) No Outlook. MS Office is not Outlook. Outlook is Outlook Eveolution = open source Outlook.

    That aside, some heads up points.
    Must purchase for each platform (Windows/Linux). Good news is I can buy one of each for multiple computers I use.

    Slow startup compared to MS Office. Excellent File compatablity, and the comment about much smaller native file sizes is true. Gets very slow on REALLY HUGE (20MB+ documents).

    Get your feet wet with OpenOffice (free). Move to StarOffice for saving $$ on licencing for many people who are power users and need the extra/better tool add-ins.

    OpenOffice has no phone support. Active end-user community via email. Some decent 3rd party training starting to show up.

    Keep legal on some MS Office seats to test complex documents against X-Office (star/open). I'll go away now and give my $ to Amazon. Best price out there.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A robust, stable software "office suite" product
    Sun Microsystems may be a household name with its Java technology, but it is a rising star (pun intended) with this latest office productivity suite. It is *no* exaggeration to call this product a significant threat/true competitor to Microsoft's Office suite.

    While most consumers won't need the included versions for Sun's industrial-strength Solaris (UNIX) operating system for SPARC and x86 processors, it is remarkable to see a single office product released on multiple platforms. I've used both the Windows and Linux versions since version 5.1 (when Sun acquired StarOffice's maker, Star Division of Germany). As with every release, the different platform versions are identical; there are no compatibility issues with the files, formats or usability, in my opinion.

    Speaking of which, here's my general thoughts on the product. (Read other reviews for more technical analyses. Think of this as a basic overview.)

    StarOffice 7.0 is stable, feature-rich, intuitive (even for previous/current Microsoft Office users) and cross-platform compatible. I can save in StarOffice's native file formats, or work with other formats, such as WordPerfect and Microsoft Office files. And the import/export functionality is clean; I don't have broken files to reformat/re-edit/fix to look right. An office suite is supposed to be your computer's Swiss Army knife. StarOffice 7.0 is finally mature enough to replace MS Office and Corel WordPerfect with its functionality. Read the POSITIVE reviews here about the product; the naysayers aren't justifying their dour comments very well.

    As part of Sun's new Java Desktop System software initiative, Sun's StarOffice product is already being used by millions of users around the world. (Yes, millions!) Unlike IBM/Lotus's SmartSuite or Corel's WordPerfect office suites, StarOffice benefits from open source community participation/innovations via the www.OpenOffice.org project. (Yes, you can download a free version, branded "OpenOffice" sans database, clip art, dictionary, etc. if you wish. But support Sun and *buy* StarOffice here at Amazon.com so that it - and OpenOffice - can continue to grow and flourish.)

    The only downsides which concerns me? 1.) No version for the Mac platform, which may be rectified by the open source version (OpenOffice) in the future. 2.) I would like to see Sun invest more in quality desktop/workspace icons for this product, too. 3.) Lackluster HTML authoring tools (if you're picky about such things). 4.) Enhancements to accomodate scriptwriters (users of Movie Magic Screenwriter, StoryView, and Dramatica Pro) and technical documentation (Adobe FrameMaker). Create add-ons which permit users to shift into other modes, depending on their needs. 5.) Create a version layer of the interface which *children* can use. In my experience, the numerous bells and whistles within the interface are too daunting for some kids. 6.) Where's the groupware functionality? 7.) Where's the Office/WordPerfect migration tools/wizards?

    And #8, which Sun can't fix: Microsoft has no filters for opening StarOffice/OpenOffice files in Office itself (although you can save StarOffice files into native Office file formats, like .doc, .xls, etc. without any problems, which Office users can work with.)

    Bottom line: Purchase StarOffice 7.0. It is a solid product for both home and business use. If you're an educational institution, contact Sun directly and get this product for your teachers, staff and students.

    Compared to the expensive Microsoft Office suite products, StarOffice 7.0 matches rival MS Office for most beginner, intermediate and (some) advance users. And it's considerably less expensive, too. The five star rating is well-suited.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Greatly improved
    StarOffice 7's usability has been imroved significantly over the prior versions.
    As before, it runs on multiple platforms (which is essential for me).
    No more crashes (the application can run for several weeks without restart
    on my Solaris box).
    User interface is improved as well: faster and more intuitive.
    StarOffice has comes with same functionality as MS office (at a fraction of the cost)
    and there are no problems with MS office interoperability!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars works fine
    I use StarOffice every day without the slightest difficulty. Writer imports .doc files without any font problems (this is on Windows), Calc and Impress are fine as well. I'm very glad not to have to pay $500 - more than the price of a PC! - to Micro$oft.

    I have to wonder about the legitimacy some of the reviews below. For instance, all those who give StarOffice one star and compare it unfavorably to OpenOffice. StarOffice is *based* on OpenOffice ... the look and feel and functionality are *identical*; StarOffice is just enhanced to do a better job of reading MS Office files. Makes no sense at all to love OpenOffice and give StarOffice one star. Methinks Bill's droids are trying to game the system.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Is zero stars possible
    Absolutely the worst Office Suite I have ever used and purchased. If you want to be aggravated by non-working applications, errors coverting MS Office Docs, Excel spread-sheets and database-java script errors then this is for you.

    For the rest of the user community use MS Office 2003, I purchased this and I am never considering anyother alternative. ... Read more

    This is great software, easy to use, yet powerful.I highly recommend it, you will be able to do almost anything you can do in Win, but better.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Everyone's linux
    Have you ever wanted to try Linux but were afraid of the all the techno geek speak you hear about it? Well then grab Linspire five-o and leave all that geek speak behind. This will be one the most exciting and easy computing experiences you have have ever had. installation takes about 15 minutes and just works right out of the box. Once you log in your surfing the Internet, reading e-mail and playing games. linspire makes it easy to install additional software with click and run and offer 1,000's of programs. In fact anything you can do in windows you can do in Linspire Five-O! Looking to do somthing with that old PC?
    Give Linspire Five-O a try. You wont regret it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The best Operating System in the World just got better
    Linspire is the only operating system I use at home. I gave up on Windows months ago. The benefits are clear:

    * Installs in under 20 minutes, that includes drivers!
    * plays ALL major media formats
    * comes complete with a FULL Office Suite which is compatible with Microsoft Office.
    * Has an amazing Music player - LSongs, if you like iTumnes you'll love this, complete with online music store!
    * An amazingly polished look, with high details, exclusive Icons and desktop wallpapers.
    * NO viruses OR Spyware OR Malware
    If you want to get even more from Linspire then for a small charge of $50 you also get access to nearly 2000 applications via Click-n-Run. Find what you want, click on it an dits automatically downloaded and installed for you - no hassle leaving you free to do other things.

    This is THE ONLY operating system you'll EVER need.

    In my opinion, this is what pc's have been waiting on!

    Absolutely Brilliant. I cant recommend this enough, it really is THAT GOOD!!

    3-0 out of 5 stars Ok for Linux beginners, but...
    those of us more experienced with operating systems may want to consider other linux distros which are available at no cost. I have Debian installed and it has the same capabilities as Linspire. If you really must try Linspire, download the free live cd version (available as ISO, just burn the image to a cd and you can try it without installing it.) If you like it, then go ahead and purchase it. The live cd is available at http://tracker.linspire.com/torrents/linspire_live_5.0.69.torrent. ... Read more

    Amazon.com Review

    The StarOffice integrated suite has been quietly growing in popularity since Sun Microsystems bought Star Division, its original German authors, a few years back. The latest version, StarOffice 6, is now one of the best software bargains in the western world. The single CD in the StarOffice box installs on Windows, Solaris, and Unix/Linux. Also in there is a good, fat manual, which goes a long way toward explaining StarOffice functions. Each StarOffice 6 program launches in a standalone window; gone is the StarOffice Desktop, a separate, Works-like interface on which earlier versions used to run.

    The word processor in StarOffice, Writer, looks much like its main rivals, Word, WordPerfect, and Word Pro. It supports most of the same heavyweight functions, too, such as outlining, frames, columns, and tables. Table functions include merge, split, and distribution, and cells can be made to expand as you type or stay fixed. Writer's tools include a spell checker, thesaurus, and auto correction of common typing errors. Longer document functions are also supported, with footnotes and endnotes, cross-referencing, indexing, and table of contents.

    Writer defaults to a print-layout view of the page, so you can see all elements as you create them, which provides a lot of scope for desktop publishing and even Web page design. All StarOffice programs now use XML as their default file format, so most documents will display directly in Web browsers. Sun realizes it must maintain compatibility with Microsoft, though, and Writer, like the other modules, opens documents from its Office equivalents.

    Writer is fully graphical and includes image import and integrated graphics and charting. One of the key ways of adding images to your Writer documents is from the Gallery, a suite-wide clipboard that comes with masses of clip art. You can drag and drop any item from the gallery to a Writer page and, just as easily, drag items from your page to store in the Gallery for use in other documents or modules.

    The StarOffice spreadsheet, Calc, is a capable program, though not quite on par with Excel, 1-2-3, or Quattro Pro. As you would expect, you can enter numbers, text, and formulas into the cells and set up relationships between them to conduct all kinds of calculations. Calc supports over 350 different functions, including esoteric ones like number base conversion and complex numbers. The program follows the industry conventions for entering and manipulating numbers, which makes it very easy to use. The charting feature is well-engineered, with a selection of color schemes that can be applied with minimum effort. A basic chart can be constructed with just a couple of mouse clicks, once you've selected your target cells.

    Of all the graphics programs in the major integrated suites, StarOffice Draw is far and away the most impressive. As well as being a useful addition to other programs, it can be opened as a separate application in its own right. The core tools for drawing lines, rectangles, and ellipses are there as you'd expect, but more unusual are those for bezier curves, polygons, connectors, arrows, and 3-D objects. Draw is just as capable with photo images as it is at constructing drawings. Import an image and you can adjust its brightness, transparency, and gamma level, as well as apply a range of different filters. While not as comprehensive as a dedicated graphics package, it's exceptionally well-equipped for part of an integrated suite.

    Draw's functions are also available in StarOffice Impress, the presentation graphics program. Although this means you can easily incorporate graphic elements into your slides, the program itself is comparatively basic. You're offered the key slide, outline, notes, and handout views for putting together an electronic slide show, but the lackluster designs and lack of coordinated color schemes mean eye-catching presentations are harder to achieve.

    The database section of StarOffice 6, Adabas, differs from the other programs in that it is integrated into several programs and is not a standalone application. Pick Tools or Data Sources in Writer or Calc and you can import a data file, such as an address list, into the database program and access it from the other applications. This is ideal for mail shots and makes viewing and manipulating addresses very easy. With different data, this program can be used for many other lists of information.

    Overall, StarOffice 6 is a versatile, well-equipped, integrated suite, a rival for the other main players but at an exceptionally attractive price. --Simon Williams. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars For most of us, this is *more* than we could ever need
    I'm not sure if the average person uses even 20% of the capabilities of MS Office. Most people make extensive use of Word and Outlook, good use of Excel, fair use of PowerPoint, and almost no use of Access. STAROFFICE IS A GREAT ALTERNATIVE THAT WILL SAVE YOU HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS! Before purchasing, please note that Sun offers this product for download under the name "openoffice".

    Benefits of StarOffice:
    * Great compatibility with MS Office apps, particularly Word; you'll be hard-pressed to find a Word file that doesn't open accurately (preserved formatting) in Star. In fact, compatibility is *far* better than WordPerfect presently offers--and I'm a WP user from back when it was one of the original "killer applications"
    * StarOffice Draw (for creating graphics) blows Word's drawing tools out of the water. This has always been a weakness of Word. Draw is comparable, if not better than, drawing tools in WordPerfect.
    * StarOffice Adabas (database application) is included (getting MS Access requires buying MS Office Pro) and is easier to use than MS Access. Adabas integrates with other StarOffice apps so, for instance, users can easily create mail merge documents.

    Drawbacks:
    * MAJOR: No MS Outlook: This really may be the most important part of MS Office. Detractors can complain all they want, but there is just no PIM available that is near its equal. (The opensource community is working on this, however.)
    * MEDIUM: I have yet to see a presentation package as good as PowerPoint (which is by no means perfect). I do hear that Apple's got a good new one, but most of us use PC.
    * MINOR: No pivot tables in Excel: If you don't know what a pivot table is, then you don't need to worry that it's not available.
    * MINOR: Interface to MS Office apps is more refined than StarOffice's.
    * MINOR: MS Access is a better database application, but Adabas is easier to use.

    For home or small- to medium- business use, this is a no-brainer. Frankly, with Microsoft's new licensing policies, which will penalize people for not upgrading by requiring them to pay full price for new versions if they skip a version, I expect some large corporations to eventually make the switch.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great choice, especially for schools, libraries, churches
    It's kind of hard to believe that it's sixty bucks or whatever the current price is, substitutes for Word Excel and Powerpoint, opens those file formats, lets you SAVE BACK TO THOSE FILE FORMATS, and is still good. But that's the real deal.

    It doesn't convert everything perfectly, but then if you've ever tried to open Office 97 files in Office XP, you've experienced far more frustration. StarOffice is more compatible with multiple versions of Word than Microsoft Office itself is.

    It's also basically got a combination of Corel Draw Lite and Visio Lite built into its drawing program, Draw. The other reviewers haven't mentioned it much and I don't know why, because I think it's the best part of the program. You've got:
    - Connector lines like Visio
    - Spectacular 3D effects
    - Bitmap editing ability
    - Standard drawing tools
    - Gallery you can put clip art into
    - Conversion between different types: Bezier curves, polygons, 3D, bitmap, metafile, etc.
    - EASY TO LEARN. I've tried to learn Illustrator which of course is a great product but I much prefer Draw.

    Writer, Calc, and Impress are good too. I imagine there are some features in MS Office that you might want but don't have in StarOffice, but I haven't come across them.

    My only complaint is that it's kind of hard to figure out where some of the features are. Some are under menu items you don't know about. We finally got a few copies of the StarOffice 6.0 Office Suite Companion at work, though, and it's pretty much got everything you need to know. I haven't found much yet that isn't in there, and they make a point of telling you when stuff doesn't do what you might expect so you don't waste your time trying. I really liked the migration chapter, since I had some 5.2 stuff that I needed to convert, and the database chapter is GREAT since it gives you exactly the syntax to set up databases for mySQL and ODBC and stuff.

    So in short (though it's too late for that), get this, or if you want a demo download openoffice.org which is the free open source version.

    5-0 out of 5 stars staroffice rocks but there are some issues
    Everything works great with staroffice and openoffice software. Opening and saving MS documents is a breeze as long there are not VB/VB script controls associated with them (most of my documents don't). I have this installed on Redhat linux 9.0 and Win98. I am glad that they got rid of Staroffice desktop manager. For a product at this price the features are great but I will continue to spend more money on MS products for the following reasons.
    1. Whenever I saved a document, our ceiling fan at home stopped.
    2. Whenever I opened a document, the coffee machine at work broke.
    3. I want to donate more money to MS camp.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Just use MS Office and be done
    The functionality of this software product leaves a lot to be desired. You can purchase MS Office and have the complete package and be very pleased.

    The Star Office is full of bugs, slow and the user interface is ugly.

    1-0 out of 5 stars eeeewwww!
    Sorry I ever tried this software. Trying to save money. Doesn't have anywhere the function or ability of MICROSOFT products, difficult and frustrating to use. I am selling my version now... I will happily pay the price for something that WORKS. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Great product, lousy company--never got refund for state
    I give Turbo Tax 5 stars and Intuit 1 star, averaging to 3 stars.

    I've used Mac'N'Tax (the Turbo Tax predecessor that Intuit bought out) and Turbo Tax since the late-80's--so that's a lot of returns. The product has worked very well for me, with only a few complaints. The ability to roll forward your tax information year after year is one of the compelling features of Turbo Tax--once you set up a depreciation, or have credits that carry forward, Turbo Tax populates this information in next year's return.

    However, I have found Intuit to have become less friendly and more work to deal with as the year's have gone by. If you end up needing technical support your entire experience with the product will probably be soured. In 2003 even though the "Deluxe" product advertised that it came with a free state product, you had to pay to download and then send in the voucher to get your money refunded. Quite annoying, but the real kicker is that the refund never came and Intuit was pretty much unresponsive to my attempts to follow up.

    I will probably continue using Turbo Tax because the product is solid (at least for me...I see others have had issues), and because once you've got your tax information in for one year, the next year and the next year after that you keep reaping benefits. I just wish some other company would buy the product from Intuit so I could quit dealing with them.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Now if they'd stop charging a premium for Mac users.
    Regarding the C-Dilla issue... this is the statement from Intuit, makers of TurboTax. Keep in mind, it was never in the Mac software anyway.

    "In response to customer feedback, we have removed the technology from TurboTax 2003 products. In addition, Intuit is changing its policy and updating the TurboTax software license agreement, enabling customers to use TurboTax software to install, prepare, file and print multiple returns for themselves and their family from multiple computers."

    I've always found TurboTax to be a very good product. If this C-Dilla issue proves to have been resolved, it may be again. However, their insistance that they need to charge a 25% premium for the Mac version is just foolish.

    5-0 out of 5 stars saves my sanity every year!
    I have been using TurboTax (formerly MacInTax) for 6 years now, and it gets better every year. Beginning last year, I did the electronic filing and I couldn't have been happier with the results. Philosophical arguments notwithstanding regarding doing this electronically, I did get an e-mail response from Quicken saying everything went through and 2 days later a response from the IRS that they had received my return. I always used to put off filing my taxes until the last possible moment because I dreaded reading all the details and filling out the complicated boxes with the vague instructions. It's not something you want to get wrong. I have never had a tax preparer do my taxes for me - I've always done my own since I was 17, but procrastination has always been my enemy, even when I had a juicy refund coming to me.

    TurboTax takes the chore and bore out of the process. Each aspect of the software has little checks to make sure you're doing everything correctly. I was able to import my data from previous returns to save loads of time filling out stuff that doesn't change from year to year as a rule.

    The software takes you dialogue by dialogue asking you questions like "do you own any stocks?" and if not, you skip the all the related questions so you don't have to muddle through things that don't apply to you. Everything is in concise categories.

    Anytime you have a question, you can click on the help button for specific, context-sensitive information. The major sections have built-in QuickTime videos of professional tax experts explaining the latest tax laws and what the IRS is looking for, etc. etc.

    When you're about all done, it does an error check and automatically goes through everything on your return and will tell you if anything on your return contains errors or otherwise will raise a red flag with the IRS and make you more vulnerable to an audit.

    After filing my taxes with Turbo Tax, I got my refund deposited into my bank account electronically within 6 days. For those who are not expecting refunds, but rather have to send payment to the IRS, you can set up your payment so that it gets sent at the last possible moment on April 15, even if you file much earlier.

    When you first install the software, it first checks with Intuit's servers for any updates and allows you to download State Tax software for free (if applicable). Fortunately, there are no state income taxes in Texas (yea for us!).

    I am using a nearly 6-year-old Mac running (albeit slowly) Panther (10.3.3) and the software ran like a champ.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Updates a nightmare, no customer support
    I've used Turbotax ever since the MacInTax years, and the software was always easy to use and update--until now. Using an iMac with OS 9.2.2 and Turbotax Deluxe 2003, over a 56K modem the update that promises to take "just a few minutes" actually takes about 120 of them, that is, if something does not crash on you first. The updates would apparently install successfully but the program kept telling me, "You've never checked for updates"--and refused to let me fill out form 4652 for Depreciation based on that. After attempting the download at least three or four times, I ordered the "update on CD". It took 10 days to arrive. After installing it, the same error message appeared again. Also, apparently the "update" does not put obsolete files into the trash. Therefore, finally after several 'Update" attempts I ended up with several folders and did not know which files were up to date or which files my program was pointing to. So I spent several hours going through all the folders manually comparing file creation dates. This enabled me to finally complete form 4652 but after finishing the State return, I once again received an error message, "You've never checked for updates". All I've spent the last three weeks doing is checking for updates!

    The State return was very disappointing also, because, if you need to quit in the middle, the software cannot remember where you left off--so you may have to click through literally tens of screens to get back to where you were.

    Intuit's online "support" was a pointless waste of hours and hours of even more time. With this year's product being so unsatisfactory, I simply could not justify sending Intuit a single penny more to get it working. I shouldn't have to. I began my tax return at the end of February. Now it is April 13 and I still have not got this garbage product running.

    Next year I won't mind spending hundreds of dollars more to take my taxes to an accountant. Time is money too, and life is way too short to waste any of it trying to fix a product that ought to have been debugged and finished BEFORE it was shipped.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Don't expect to import '02 TaxCut data!
    Despite assurances from TurboTax customer service that I could import data from last year's TaxCut (ever try to manually enter years of depreciation?), I found that he forgot to mention the details. You have to find a PC computer with PC TurboTax, import the TaxCut data, then transfer that file into your Mac for use. Just a slight omission!

    Now after having no other choice but to also purchase '03 TaxCut, I can honestly say I'll never buy an Intuit product again... ... Read more

    Amazon.com Review

    Let's see--a full-featured, interoperable, multiplatform office suitethat's light on your hard drive and drastically cheaper than thecompetition. Could it be true? Check out Sun StarOffice 5.2 Deluxe and find asleek alternative to Microsoft Office that's compatible with that suite's files,incorporates nearly all of the same tools and features, and runs on abreathtaking range of operating systems.

    It might take a little noodling for Windows users to get the hang of theinterface, as it essentially takes over the desktop and changes a few thingsaround; after the learning period, though, you won't want to go back. Instead ofopening a new program for each type of file (text document, spreadsheet,database, image, appointment, Web page, etc.), simply tell StarOffice what youwant and each file opens in its own window, speeding up access considerably.OLE-style embedding is easy, and most of the look and feel will be comfortablefor Office users. Currently there's not much third-party support, and helpfunctions are ever present but inconsistent, so it's important to consider thecosts carefully before installing.

    StarOffice is perfect for those switching to Linux or multiple operatingsystems, or any new user who needs an inexpensive office suite with plenty ofoptions. Current users of Microsoft Office might be better off sticking withUncle Bill--between learning new commands and the marginal differences betweenthe two, you might think inertia's not so bad after all. The programs includedwill definitely surpass your expectations if you consider price alone: thepresentation and drawing programs are simple and wonderful, the basic officefeatures of document and personal information management are intuitive, and thee-mail, news, and Web browsing are snappy. Integrated as they are with the wordprocessor, spreadsheet, and database functions, they all come together to form apowerful and inexpensive challenge to Microsoft Office. --Rob Lightner

    Pros:

    • Inexpensive
    • Interoperable with Microsoft Office
    • Multiplatform--runs on Windows, Linux, OS/2, and more
    Cons:
    • Little third-party support
    • Underdocumented

    4-0 out of 5 stars A reasonably priced altternate to Microsoft Office Suite
    Suns' StarOffice 5.2 Deluxe offers an integrated Word Processor, SpreadSheet, DataBase, Presentation Program, Calculation programe, Email, WYSWYG Website Editor and Browser. The software works well together, and has a short learning curve, although some of the features are difficult to locate at first, the process becomes easier in time. StarOffice uses Suns Java inplementation for several of its features, especially it's browser, and so runs roughly on slower systems (below 200 Mhz) but this is a minor drawback when you consider the price conpared to that of other full office Suites, like MicroSoft Office 2000, a comparable package. While the software can be downloaded for free from Sun's site, purchasing is makes sense if (1) you lack the bandwidth to download the nearly 80 MB of files, (2) you want to install the software on more than one computer, or (3) you want the documentation that comes with this CD. This would be a bargain at several times the price. StarOffice 5.2 can save files in a Office 97 0r 2000 format, and can read the files generated by those programs. As an alternate Office Suite, there is little support fo templates and tutorials on the web for this package, Although Amazon does carry "Sun Star Office 5.1 for Windows," which will help with most of the features in version 5.2. I recommend this for home and office use.

    5-0 out of 5 stars StarOffice 5.2 from SUN
    StarOffice is a full-nelson office application suite from SUNwho purchased it originally from StarDivision of Germany. The latest version 5.2 is available on CD-ROMfrom SUN... (you "heard" me right!) and alternatively you may download it from SUN's website. But don't let the low low price fool you or sway you from getting a copy now! I once looked up the price back when this product was StarDivision property, and it was in the range of 500 Deutche Marks (I'll let you do the monetary translation.)

    StarOffice is available natively for the following operating system platforms: Linux, Solaris, and Windows. Version 5.1b is still available for OS/2 users. As a side note, SUN also has a "StarPortal" version initiative going on to bring Office productivity services via the internet.

    StarOffice consists of the following fully integrated applications: Wordprocessor, Spreadsheet, Presentation, Scheduler, Graphics/Drawing, Email, Database, GUI FTP-client, GUI HTML-editor, and more. Users moving to StarOffice can open and edit their old MS Word, Excel and Powerpoint, Lotus Amipro/Word or 123 files, but many more file formats are supported including StarOffice native file formats. Webmasters can build HTML websites withStarOffice's HTML GUI-editor, Java support, graphics tools, and full FTP client to make editing and saving web documents up on the server or locally fully seamless. Email support includes POP3/IMAP/LDAP/SENDMAIL/NEWS, and you can setup multiple email accounts simultaneously.

    StarOffice installs in about 15 minutes (with server or local options possible), looks and feels exactly the same across platforms, and you can run it as an independent application or as your replacement desktop. It has it's own "Start Menu" that presents you with all your programs, as well as all your desktop icons. You can see a great deal of thought went into the design of this product with an integrated workspace in mind.

    Office managers looking to save money by avoiding more expensive products and licensing issues may find their holy grail in StarOffice from SUN, with the added benefit of support for multiple computer platforms. Home computer users will save a bundle too, and yet still be able to work with their old MS Word documents, etc.

    StarOffice is a product whose time has come. You are certainly missing out if you pass it by....

    5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome alternative to MS Office
    Using the program is very simple, and all programs in Star Office can be saved in MS Office formats. A awesome alternative to MS Office.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Far more than just an office suite.
    StarOffice 5.2 has most all the office component capabilities one needs; spreadsheet, word processor, database, draw program, visual basic and macros, etc. However, with OpenOffice.org developer support, this core "office suite" is only a starting point for many possible applications. Applications interfaces such as "point of sale" or "scientific instrumentation" can be built on this office component core. StarOffice 5.2 is, in effect, a visual component library that works on many operating system and hardware platforms. This puts StarOffice in a class by itself.

    1-0 out of 5 stars HELP!
    I am not a dummy, but I think that I need StarOffice 5.2 for Dummies also. As one of the others has stated. I have had nothing but problems getting this thing installed and finally gave up! It is just a big mess! And now I cannot get it to completely uninstall and it is causing a lot of complications with my system? I cannot understand what is going on here. I have tried everything! It seems it isn't installed completely, so I can't actually use it, but I can't uninstall anything more than I already have and my systems still says it is there and it is reaking havoc on my system! I am glad to see that there a few other people out there that seems to be having the same problem that I have. I thought I was losing my mind for a while there.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Davis Vantage Pro produces false readings.
    The Davis Vantage Pro will produce false readings when using a frequency hopping 900 MHz telephone such as the AT&T 9400 (a great phone) nearby.It will typically display and record, if you are using the Davis Data Logger Module, 157 MPH wind velocity when using this AT&T phone.This suggests that Davis is not using a strong enough data integrity mechanism in the data packets sent by the remote instrument package and sufficient error checking in the base unit.Repeated requests to Davis to fix this fell on deaf ears.I even offered to help their engineers to test fixes but they were not interested.I have to constantly edit the data collected to manually remove the bad data.It is a real pain.It is also possible that other bad data values are getting through but I may not recognize them.The 157 MPH wind is easy to spot.If you use the popular 900 MHz telephones then you may want to consider another vendor. ...
