Re: Proposed changes to lubuntu-desktop


>From a very-humble user point of view:

I use Libre Office + Gnumeric (Abiword can't convince me). As i read
recently, Libre Office is getting performance improvements, but the problem
is still the ram consumption vs the ram used by abiword (i use LO for writer
and slideshows, but gnumeric is a magnificient tool), LO is an option? It
could bring a slideshow editor to Lubuntu... Let individually decide but my
guess is that Lubuntu should remain with abiword & gnumeric for the concept.

That's "my" two cents :)
