OOP in C isn't too bad at all. I'm in the middle of rewriting small project in C (formerly C++ of course) because the target system might only have working C compiler. Quite interesting, although I'm forced to be so careful regarding memory leaks. I wonder how they can manage millions line of C code in GNOME...

DivX under Linux is just amazing. I can get it working on Celeron-350, for simple video (and they claimed you need PII-450). It's not that trivial but also couldn't considered pain: just grab Xine or MPlayer, configure, make, make install, and you're ready to go. And yet I got smooth full-screen with GeForce2. Without hassle.

WordPerfect stuff. It's not getting easier. WordPerfect 5.x export filter for KWord still produces nasty bugs, albeit WP 6 or 7 is just fine. Hopefull I can managed this quickly since KWord 1.2 should to be able to save and load most WordPerfect documents.
