    I hate docs togo / DataViz. A year or so ago, I sat down and added up how much money I have given them in the last 10 years and the number was over $400. Every 4-6 months or so they come out with a useless upgrade that should be a x.1 upgrade but they make them a x.0 upgrade and they are never free. I guess I am a sucker to fall for their BS so many times.

    I would much rather give my money to any another company for a document editing suite.

    Tough call here. Open Source is always good but I'd much like to see QuickOffice come through for us. I had QuickOffice long before Docs2Go because it was a superior product. In fact the only reason I switched was because DTG was included on the Treo when I got it so there wasn't much point upgrading QO since I don't use the products THAT much.

    But that said, I'd use them enough to drop another 30 bucks or so on a WebOS version.

    It definitely has to be open source simply because of the number of advantages associated with it. Hope to see lot of support for the open source from the developers.

    Why don't you try posting this in the proper forum area so everyone will see it, developers included. Not just general Pre owners? There's already multiple threads there about Office development and Data Viz including one about PreDocs.

    Pixi: Sold. Pre: Passed off to another rep. Touchpad: Just a toy until Cloud syncing arrives, and a better doc editor.

    How about Softmaker Office. They have a Linux version and a Windows Mobile version. Better than Open Office on translating formating.

    Thanks for the tip. Next time. This post integrates 3 of those posted as individual ones. And yes is very important that developers see this one to post their valuable opinions.

    I will make a link to this one

    DataViz is "dead to me". (They will never get another dime from me, in fact - I might just even avoid buying any device that comes bundled with their software!)
    I'm both super! ... and a doer!

    My $0.02 is to be patient. The webos-internals folks have already demonstrated that native OpenOffice on the Pre is a real possibility:



    Still a work in progress for them, but I have already used it the other day to make a quick change to a presentation file that I had stored on the phone.

    The Pre's screen size and lack of cursor key support are the biggest problems at the moment.....
