Um, those other codecs are shit by comparison...I mean you want to
replace On2 VP6 with On2 VP3...how the fuck does THAT make any sense?
And what the hell licensing issues are you talking about? I mean, you
buy Sorenson Squeeze for $250 and you get to encode 50 files a day or
1,500 files a month. If you need more than that (which would be more
than a bit odd if you did), then you simply buy Squeeze for Flash
Unlimited instead for $1,238 per system per year.
....how much simpler does it get?

Um, sorry kiddo, but OpenOffice is WAY more bloated than MS Office:
....unless you're talking about overall program size on the HD...but
you couldn't be talking about that, I mean...that'd just be fuckin
retarded to be worried about THAT size considering how cheap 500 GIG
