OpenOffice.Org

Post  Betep on Sat Apr 16, 2011 7:02 am



I mentioned that I had switched from using the Microsoft Office Suite of Products to Open Office a while back HERE.

It should be a sub topic of Open Source, but too late and Admin doesn't want to shuffle posts and threads around.

OpenOffice is well described by Cnet :
Reviewed by: CNET Staff on November 07, 2008

"A credible rival to MS Office, OpenOffice.org includes powerful applications for making text documents, spreadsheets, presentations, diagrams, and databases, as well as HTML and XML documents. Not only does it let you edit basic documents, such as letters and faxes, it also handles equations and complex and multipart documents with bibliographies, reference tables, and indexes."

From From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

OpenOffice.org, commonly known as OOo or OpenOffice, is an open-source application suite whose main components are for word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, graphics, and databases.[7] It is available for a number of different computer operating systems, is distributed as free software and is written using its own GUI toolkit. It supports the ISO/IEC standard OpenDocument Format (ODF) for data interchange as its default file format, as well as Microsoft Office formats among others. As of November 2009[update], OpenOffice.org supports over 110 languages.[4] As free software, users are free to download, modify, use and distribute OpenOffice.org.

I'll try to keep everything related to OOo in this tread.

On Demand Webcast : Making the decision on hosted apps - What’s the risk and reward?

Oracle is turning OpenOffice into a purely community project, and no longer plans to offer a commercial version of the collaboration suite loved by many.

The database giant said on Friday that it believed OpenOffice would be best managed by an organization focused on serving the broad constituency on a non-commercial basis.

Oracle chief corporate architect Edward Screven said in a brief statement: "We intend to begin working immediately with community members to further the continued success of Open Office," adding that "Oracle will continue to strongly support the adoption of open standards-based document formats, such as the Open Document Format (ODF)."

I updated to 3.3.
I haven't seen ant changes yet. Perhaps later.

It took a while, not a short change.
