OK, first of all, sorry for the shortness of my contribution. Allow me to
explain a bit.
We are thinking about standard on the go users who run Xubuntu Live, I
think GiMP is a great tool for editing and creating photo projects. But
games, lets be truly sinceres, we dont run it live to play, am I right? So
thats why Im thinking we use GiMP and LibreOffice, someone pointed that
Abiword is quite buggy and it is indeed. GNUmeric is a good tool but
comparing vs LO Calc, it loses. Sorry for the english, not my native
language. Have a great day.
