The final bits of OpenOffice 1.1 are now available for download. OpenOffice, the core of Sun’s StarOffice 7.0 offshoot, is a free and open source alternative to Microsoft Office. The suite comes complete with a word processor, spreadsheet, presentation software and other components, while continuing its tradition of utilizing an XML-based file format.
My spin: Sure it’s taking aim and might be great for some businesses. HOWEVER, since MOST every business uses MS Office you’ve GOT TO use MS Office also for 100% file compatibility. 90% won’t cut it – if you’ve got to reformat every document sent and received. One solutions – just use HTML!
