    Open Office 1.1 RC was released last week...personally, I think this open source Office Suite easily rivals M$ Office :D
    [b] OpenOffice.org 1.1 RC is the release candidate of the revolutionary OpenOffice.org 1.1. It is ready for general use and we encourage everyone to download the application now. OpenOffice.org 1.1 RC replaces our legacy build, OpenOffice.org 1.0.3.1, which lacks the new features making OpenOffice.org 1.1 the best office suite. OpenOffice.org 1.1 RC not only includes those features introduced in 1.1beta, such as export to PDF, SWF, DocBook, PDA Office file formats, improved on-line Help, but also:
    # The ability to update existing OpenOffice.org 1.0.x single user installations
    # Integrated Bitstream Vera fonts
    # Support for MicrosoftTM Excel 95 and older form controls
    # Built-in proofing tools and hyphenation for numerous languages
    more info and downloads here: OpenOffice.org

    Thanks from me as well minibubba!
    Just a note to those who use this great free program: Not sure if my installation problems are typical but I did run into some problems updateing the old OO with this new one. Short cuts were messed up ect. Wound up uninstalling the whole thing and doing a full install.

    just read this interesting article about how to convince a business/corportation to switch to OpenOffice

    It's worth the read and also gives some interesting points for anyone thinking about trying it

    it appears the OOo group wants their final 1.1 release to be as close to perfect as possible. They have released yet another RC, this time RC4.

    http://www.openoffice.org/
    [b]What does OpenOffice.org 1.1 RC4 include? The same as RC3: Tested features such as export to PDF, SWF, DocBook, and improved on-line Help, but also:

    * Many bugs fixed
    * Existing single-user installation update capability
    * Integrated Bitstream Vera fonts
    * Built-in proofing tools and hyphenation for many languages
    * Better Microsoft Office filters
    Download Sites
    OpenOffice.org 1.1 rc4 Features

    They must be getting close to the final product since they released an SDK this time:
    [b]The Software Development Kit (SDK) for OpenOffice.org 1.1 RC4 is ready for all developers. It provides code samples, extensive documentation, and very useful guidance for any developer wanting to work with the OpenOffice.org source.

    yet another RC has been released... seems the OOo is taking a lot of care before releasing the final version.
    [b]OpenOffice.org 1.1 Release Candidate 5 is now available for download. We have Linux, Windows, and Solaris (Sparc) ready in English. Other platforms and languages will come soon. This release is nearly our final release but we need to make sure. Therefore:

    * Download OpenOffice.org 1.1 RC5 if you want to test and help finalize this important release. File an issue if you find a bug.
    * Download OpenOffice.org 1.0.3, our stable legacy build, if you are not interested in the new features and enhancements present in 1.1 RC5.
    It can be downloaded here: http://www.openoffice.org/dev_docs/source/1.1rc5/

    Hey maybe one should dl and try that thingy on a spare machine just for the hell of it. :)

    But do it really have all the sweet features that M$ Office has? I only use aprox 25 percent of the features within Word & Excel myself while my gf and her heavy law studying work easily uses around 85-90.. My eyes can't even keep up when she starts working in blistering speeds with all the friggin' diagrams, frames, formulas and whatnot.. lol

    And what about stability just as good as M$? Not to mention the compability, if one puts in several hours in a work and then email it to alot of important people who is using M$ then it just got to work flawless.. :)

    :cheers:
