Open Office has certainly grown in popularity over the last few years with people who wanted office software, but didn't want the expense and all the extra feature that Microsoft Office brings with it. Today. eWeek published a slide show that gives you a quick tour on some of the improvements in OpenOffice.org 3.3.
They have also posted a review of it saying:
Upon reflection, the main disappointment in OpenOffice.org 3.3 is the lack of any features that make it stand out in comparison to LibreOffice 3.3. Although the LibreOffice developers found it possible to add several noteworthy and useful features to the code that forked from OpenOffice.org, thereís nothing in the OpenOffice.org suite that isnít in LibreOffice.
Apparently LibreOffice has more features than OpenOffice.org and a broader base of support. They claim this will "tip the balance for many evaluators."
I wonder if it's time to take a look at LibreOffice? If you would like to learn more about LibreOffice, please click the link below.
