OpenOffice 2.0 Debuts

OpenOffice 2.0, which competes with Microsoft Office has been released.
Information Week writes 2.0 isn’t totally reliant on OpenDocument, or even a nebulous Google-Sun deal, to make news, however. This version of the suite features a new database component — dubbed “ Base” — major improvements in compatibility with Microsoft Office document formats, and a redesigned user interface.
The suite’s export-to-PDF feature has also been improved, said, to give users more control over the quality and size of the resulting PDF files.
