-=PCTechTalk=- Re: Open Office... Wow!

I purchased theOpen CD Disc so I would not have to deal with a 5+ hours 
download.  I am doing a lot of reading in the help section to learn the 
program.  Just got a notice that an upgrade is available.  My question for 
you:  Will it take hours to do an upgrade?  I am on dialup.  I am inclined 
to skip the upgrade if it is going to take a long time and possibly require 
a download accelerator.
