Canon USA Printer Support are using LibreOffice?

I called Canon USA to talk about the ink usage of a new printer.

When I stated that I make letter size posters using LibreOffice Writer,
he said "we use it".

So, with that statement, is seems that Canon USA printer support people
are using LibreOffice.

I would love to get it verified, but it would be a good marketing coo
for LO if a big company like Canon uses LibreOffice.

ALSO, finally Canon USA is now offering Linux drivers for some of their
printers.  I use to have to go to Canon UK to find them - before I buy a
new printer - if there is Linux support. Some of their printer lines do
not have Linux drivers.

I used to work for a company that used OpenOffice (this was before
LibreOffice was available).  I suspect the only reason they did was
because they were so d@mn cheap, they wouldn't pay for MS Office.  ;)

Well cheap or not, it is nice to have as many big companies using
LibreOffice as possible.

I bet there are a lot of people out there, and on these lists, that are
using LO not because of being "cheap".  It is nice to have a free office
suite but I prefer LO over MS Office. Just like I prefer to use Linux
over Win10 because of all of the viruses and other nasties that Windows
have, while Linux do not have these things infect their systems.

And the suggestion that the latest crypt virus may have been introduced
to computers through a document macro makes me more comfortable using LO
without MSO on any win PCs.

Well, if you look at the CNN Headline News, they have stated that MS has
a patch for this virus, but wanted to charge some users for it.  The
on-air comment seems to say that since MS had the patch, they should
have sent it out to ALL MS Windows users.  Plus, it the patch was
installed, most computers would not have been infected.

Fro me, I use Linux so I do not have the security problems as MS Windows
users.  I do have Win10, but rarely use it.  Most times I just go to the
Win 10 partition to run the update app.

Re: Canon USA Printer Support are using LibreOffice?

Last year, I accidently erased Win10 in an attempt to create a dual boot with Mint 18. It was totally my fault. Now, I'm kind of glad I did it. So far I haven't missed it.
