What works

Most things work, I only use a limited number of features on it. Make basic web pages and use tables to make lists and printouts 

What does not

Sometimes the dialogue boxes freeze program, using the pull down menus for some things works better.


Restarting the program usually works and also using the pull down menus instead of dialogue boxes for some functions bypasses problems

What was not tested

there are many features not tested as I never use them.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Intel
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

Sometimes a Wine error message box pops up when starting program, and then when frontpage opens it disappears. a restart usually fixes it. Subsequent openings for that day usually are totally good.
