Writing Papers in FreeBSD
Hey guys, dunno if I'm posting this in the right forum or not.. but here goes.
I'm a history major in college right now, so needless to say I have to type up A LOT of papers.
I love messing around with FreeBSD and I used my last "hardware malfunction" on my laptop (I hate the mediadirect button on my Dell Vostro) as an excuse to forget to install Windows and just use FreeBSD.
Here's the problem though.. using the default settings from Abiword or Openoffice (OO.org I've only experienced using in Linux, but i assume its largely the same with FreeBSD) causes some extreme weirdness when you try to open the same document in Windows. We're talking a 15 page paper turning into a 12 page paper.. because of margins, DPI, or whatever. I have to go to my school's library to print because I lack a printer at home.. so I'm wondering if anyone may have found a solution for making paper written in FreeBSD/Linux/etc look at least somewhat similiar to those written in Windows.
Any hep would be appreciated, thanks!
