So I downloaded Patch 8 tonight and since I was critical in my last post on it I thought I would say that in fairness Patch 8 uses a lot of resources but it does actually put them to use. This revision felt much faster and more responsive. In fact I was able to use it happily for a good two hours without any issues apart from some funny focus business after a autosave and even that wasn’t really that annoying.
An Aqua OpenOffice is a great thing but so far this has been a bit of a back and forth experience, more so than I would expect for a Beta. This sometimes feels like more a “Nightly Build” affair.
