OpenOffice4Kids - Educating kids the right way

,----[ Quote ]
| Office suites are mainly intended for adults. 
| But sometimes, kids write too. And when they 
| do, they work with tools intended for their 
| parents, functionality and looks wise. This 
| makes the chance of a child liking big, 
| complex word processors and spreadsheet 
| software less likely. But what if you helped 
| them a bit? 


Head to Head: Office 2010 vs Open Office 3.1 

,----[ Quote ]
| It's a battle of the office productivity 
| suites as we look at how Office 2010 shapes up 
| against its main open alternative. We find out 
| which is best in this head to head review.
| In this head to head we are focusing on the 
| two most popular suites of office software on 
| the market today. While some people consider 
| the comparison a little one sided, we thought 
| it was time to give Open Office a chance to 
| stand up to the heavyweight that is 
| Microsoftâs 20-year old Office, in its latest 
| beta incarnation.
| We have chosen these two big-hitters because 
| of the wealth of support and features 
| available but weâd like to offer a nod to 
| Google Docs, a suite which we see as a 
| potential contender for the future, when it 
| makes up part of the upcoming Chrome OS.



OpenOffice.org 3.2 Offers Modest Update, Better Startup Speed

,----[ Quote ]
| Version 3.2 of the open-source OpenOffice.org
| productivity suite delivers a handful of file
| format compatibility enhancements alongside
| feature tweaks for the suite's Calc
| spreadsheet application and continued gains
| in startup speed for the suite as a whole.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
