OpenOffice.org vs. Microsoft Office

,----[ Quote ]
| How does OpenOffice.org (OOo) compare with 
| Microsoft Office (MSO)? The question is harder 
| to answer than you might expect. Few users 
| have the experience or patience to do a 
| thorough comparison. Too often, they miss 
| features that have different names or are in 
| different positions in the editing window. Or, 
| perhaps they overlook the fact that some 
| features, although missing in one, easily can 
| be added through customization. Yet another 
| problem when comparing something to MSO is 
| which of the eight current versions of MSO do 
| you use for the comparison? 


Open Office 3.2: Faster, More Office Compatibility

,----[ Quote ]
| The concept of an office suite, with word 
| processing, spreadsheet and presentation 
| software, is one that is well understood by 
| users, which is also why it's often difficult 
| to improve them. Users already expect their 
| office suites to do certain things, making the 
| job of office suite developers often one of 
| fit and finish. 



OpenOffice.org 3.2 is First Out of the Blocks in the 2010 Office Software Race


OpenOffice.org 3.2.0 released today


OpenOffice 3.2: more stability, more speed

,----[ Quote ]
| The OpenOffice team have made version 3.2
| of the open source office suite for
| Windows, Mac OS, Linux and Solaris
| available to download. It offers numerous
| enhancements over its predecessor which
| offer both stability and speed benefits.
| Writer and Calc, for example, should now
| start twice as fast as in version 3.1.1.
| Improved Microsoft Office filters now make
| it possible to open protected Word, Excel
| and PowerPoint files (after entering the
| correct password). The project tem has also
| improved compatibility with the
| OpenDocument standard.


OpenOffice 3.2 is on tap

| Improvements in the latest release of the
| open source office suite include faster
| start-ups, improved compatibility with
| other office programs, and several new
| features (with special attention to the
| Calc spreadsheet program.)

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
