  7. Tell me: Why is this old font “Times New Roman” still the standard font?! I know that I can change it, however this font is far >>>too<<< old to ever be used again! Your enemy named Microsoft does it far better and uses NEW and NICE fonts!!!

  10. Many thanks to the LibreOffice developers!

    The Windows version of this release appears to be significantly improved over the beta releases when it comes to font rendering, which for me as a journalist and editor is critical. It is for this reason that I’ve been mostly using Microsoft Office 2010 with the 64-bit version of Windows 7 Professional on a Lenovo X201 tablet PC. Now I don’t make use of most of the whizzy features in Office 2010, and feel that OneNote is a solution looking for a problem, but I like the Microsoft office suite as it is well designed, and easy on the eye when used for hours at a time. Hopefully, at some point in the near future, I can switch full-time to LibreOffice.

    There is one minor thing that bugs me, even though it is only an aesthetic matter. That is, desktop thumbnails on Windows 7 do not have a transparent background, unlike, say, those for PDF files. Is there any way of fixing this?
