I wonder how many people uses Openoffice? OK, you have never heard of OpenOffice?
OpenOffice.org is an open source version of Sun’s Star Office Suite. OpenOffice.org 2.1 is freely available and redistributable, and supports seven platforms: Windows, Linux x86 and PowerPC, Solaris x86 and SPARC, Mac OS X and FreeBSD. It offers a word processor (Writer), spreadsheet manager (Calc), multimedia presenter (Impress), simple to 3D illustrator (Draw), database manipulator (Base) and a tool to create mathematical equations (Math).
Among the most significant features includes the file format, open office 2.1 used OASIS OpenDocument, a standardized and well documented file format, an initiative to support global exchange of data. It’s design is focused on improving interoperability with MSOffice package. Which means it can read MSOffice files along with similarities in the GUI. The Openoffice PDF feature is a genuine highlight that makes OpenOffice a powerful tool for creating PDF distributions like documents and forms.
If you are not addicted to the MS Office Package’s Outlook, InfoPath, OneNote, Groove and Publisher then this is a valid alternative. I would suggest for home users, small businesses and educational facilities on super-tight budgets to make the move today.
