MYLITTLEPO, NY (Acme Quicknews) -- Patrons of the Reference Computer Shop protest in front of the shop because of the lack of installed software, especially regarding the open-source office application

One of the patrons, who wishes to remain anonymous, stated that OpenOffice lacks many features. "It's hard to write an eighty-two page term paper with this waste of space. I don't know how set the margin for my outline using OpenOffice!"

However, Johann Sebastian Backtrack, owner of the said shop, stated the following:

"You see, it's free. Microsoft might track us like what Bounty Hunter can do in DotA, if we use Microsoft Office without buying it."

As of press time, the management of the computer shop is currently looking for an alternative solution to calm down the protesters.
