First off, Red Hat isn't asking thousands of dollars from companies that are
using Linux as a word processor.  The entitlement for Red Hat Enterprise
Linux Desktop is like $320/year or so.  If you're paying the "thousands of
dollars per year" on your RHEL entitlement, then you're not running Writer on it.

Secondly, Red Hat doesn't charge anything at all (nor could they) for
Fedora, which is what you're using -- the free consumer product.  Not only
are you using a free product, you're using an old version of it.

Facts are never trolling, but attitude is.  When you march in here and sort
of turn up your nose, snort, and act all disgusted that your free product
doesn't offer the feature you want and make noise like everyone who thinks
it's great anyway is an idiot, then that's trolling.  If you think this is
going to garner sympathy for your cause you are, as you imply, daydreaming.
