A First Look at OpenOffice.org 2.0
A lot has happened since May of 2002, when I did my review of the OpenOffice.org 1.0. We've waged a war, been through a presidential election, and I'd thought we'd become a hurricane magnet here in Florida.
And OpenOffice.org has changed too.
Just as I said back then, it's now the premier office productivity suite in the open source world. It's also bundled with a great majority of distributions and use is rapidly growing on the Microsoft platform, as well.
This release brings new features and carries on the tradition of quality that makes it a great value. In this story I'll talk about some of the new features that I like and give you a glimpse of how they work. Don't just take my word for it, try it out for yourself.
Overall, everything worked well, albeit a bit slow on the old 300-MHz PII no-name laptop. Sometimes I feel like one of those crusty old newspaper guys that bangs out his story on an antique Underwood typewriter.
