Hi Brent,

  Thanks for the reply. This is pretty much of what I've been doing, but the problem is that I use OO on two of my laptops, at work and on a virtual machine. That's 4 times I have to add each of the words. Not to mention when I re-install Ubuntu every year or so...  :-/ 

  I would guess that more people have the same problem. I mean 'bootable' and 'filesystems' are not so uncommon words.

Hi Victor,

I write a lot in the field of Audio/Video and once bemoaned the fact OO
wouldn't know how to spell some of the words I used. However, after
months of using "Add Word to Dictionary" my problems went away. Of
course I had to be careful that the words I added were indeed spelled
correctly but now I have few if any issues.

Hello everyone,

  I was wondering if anyone knows if OpenOffice has a technical dictionary? Something that would recognize words like "mkfs" or "bootloader".
