Open Office 2

Some immensely powerful features will be included in OpenOffice.org version 2. I recently attended a live demonstration; therein it was shown that regular expressions are included in the package, along with other features that make OO.org more attractive than its commercial equivalent — Microsoft Office.

Open officeOpen Office is composed almost purely of C/C++, which makes it fast. According to one source, Open Office performs better than a recent Office release.

    Always nice to know Microsoft are on the way down!

    I am definately looking foward to the new release, I have been using 1.9 Beta for a while now and it runs pretty fast. My only complaints are that the Style and Formatting toolbar isn’t dockable and the quality of suggestions for mis-spelt words (which isn’t even close to MS Words).

    Any idea when 2.0 is planned for?

    A fellow LUGer , who is in the OO.org Documentation Team, mentioned the date. It was a matter of months at the time, perhaps 1 or 2 months.

    I personally use LATEX and only run OO.org a few times a year when a text editor cannot not deal with .doc files properly enough.
