That's something :-) I have used other office tools and I had some doubts whether or not Symphony is right tool for me. But since I had no showstoppers or issues
or anything with Symphony, I guess it is right tool for me. Apparently I am "average" user of office tools :-)
There are several good ideas about Symphony that I like: Eclipse, Open Office, tabs for documents, internal browser, no cost (of course).
But perhaps the most interesting idea is plugins. Plugins opens a whole new world of possibilities. I could create plugin that saves document to version control each time I save it and so gives me a history of document creation. I could scan document for text string or words and look it up from dictionary. I could create a document template for meeting notes and have it pre-filled with customer data from CRM.
And a lot more, only limitation is imagination.
Note to self: download Symphony Developer Toolkit and create something.
