55555 OpenOffice works like it should

Slow to download with a dial-up connnection - 8 hours. No kidding, but well worth it. Loading this while I sleep is much cheaper and easier than spending $200 for something else.

55555 MS Office? Who're they?

After using OpenOffice. for about a year, I removed MS Office from my drive ( yep it is legal, it is last copy I will ever buy) I have two tables which Open Office couldn't read a few versions ago and I haven't tried with the latest. I kept Word on the puter so I could use those two tables and am too lazy to redo them. It is hard to believe the price of OpenOffice. It is worth at least $100 and MD isn't worth their price. I have several access files and some excell files and haven't had a problem with any of them. I get a lot of PPT files and read them all with OO. I haven't tried to build anything yet but am going to build a photography course in it after first of year.
Good stuff. Thank all of you who contributed to this software.

I love the fact that MS is having problems all over the world with countries and businesses switching to Open Office. Even New Hampshire is switching to be able to use ODT for text documents.

55555 Version 2.0 is out, and it's the best yet.

OpenOffice always offered a lot for free, but the 2.0 release is improved further. Compatibility with Microsoft Office file formats is improved, and the program's XML-based ODF format has been ratified by OASIS as an application-independent standard.

OOo now has a database application and a more intuitive and familiar interface. The word processing app (Writer) has advanced style and formatting tools, and in my experience, the whole package has been very stable and crash-proof. (On a WinXP PC. I can only imagine it's even more bullet-proof on Linux or MAC OS.)

The added features come at a price, in machine resources, not money. OOo 2.0 requires more disk space, memory, and CPU cycles than did its predecessor, but my PC runs it fine, and it's by no means the latest or greatest.

All in all, I can't say enough good things about OpenOffice (and I've been an MS Office user for years). Anyone who needs a good office software bundle should check it out, even those MS Office users who are considering upgrading to newer versions. You'll probably find that OOo will do everything you want, and save you a ton of money in the bargain.
