Koffice definitely not there. . No matter, I download andlinux which is
supposed to run under Windows, install it and... ooops it doesn't work. Lots
of quick start icons and desktop shortcuts but none of them seem to do
anything except one which opens a black and silent console/command line
window. Great. Not going to waste time with that. Uninstall.
