OpenOffice.org is awesome

written over 10 years ago

OpenOffice.org is definetly an awesome tool, I really wish I could contribute more to it's source code. However the OOo engineering team is doing a fantastic work with OOo and now is much easier to contribute with the whole Extensions layer.

Open Office -- Excellent

written almost 10 years ago

OpenOffice.org is a free cross-platform office application suite available for a number of different computer operating systems. It supports the ISO/IEC standard OpenDocument Format (ODF) for data interchange as its default file format, as well as Microsoft Office formats among others. OpenOffice.org was originally derived from StarOffice, an office suite developed by StarDivision and acquired by Sun Microsystems in August 1999. The source code of the suite was released in July 2000 with the aim of reducing the dominant market share of Microsoft Office by providing a free, open and high-quality alternative; later versions of StarOffice are based upon OpenOffice.org with additional proprietary components.

This free Office suite has high quality and nice support for my native language Hindi.

I particularly like Doc, calc and draw very much. Automatic harvesting of words from current document is very cool.

Nice but still a long way to go  
3.0
   
written about 11 years ago

It's very nice to be open source and following the standards but still to become the best you have to take care of your speed,efficiency,deliverability,usability etc.I feel this software is slower than its much hyped non-standards counterpart.This lag in speed makes people still prefer that highly riced beast rather than to this bird.
Its usability is also not so good in comparison.It should take care on usability.Functionality wise I prefer this the best.

OK... but not enough !!!  
3.0
   
written almost 10 years ago

Being an open source software it readily came into use and acceptable for millions of users....

But its lagging far in performance from its counterpart as its too slow and difficult to manage at times...

But I like the "lesser in size" factor also...

Works nicely, recommended

For quick documents when I don't feel like using LaTeX, OpenOffice Writer is the choice for me. I've used Impress many times for school presentations. The sheet processor is equally as useful. It's sad people keep using MS Office when this is equally as good, plus free.

Openoffice is the best!  
5.0
 
written over 1 year ago

Our family switched to Openoffice back in the early 2000's, and and it keeps getting better. 200 million users can't be wrong. Especially now, when Microsoft, Adobe, and other proprietary software companies are making their users pay monthly blackmail to use their software, and store their documents, it's important to use, espouse, switch to and support open software, such as Openoffice. Talk to your fellow workers and friends, and the managers at where you work to drop blackmailware, and switch to open software. It's the wave of the future, and the only way to keep ownership of your software, and what you produce with it. Think about open computers as well. As the hardware and software becomes more restrictive, and the Internet becomes restricted to downstream only, owning your computer, the software on it, and your creative output is the only way to stop the proprietary tidal wave from crushing us. Support open, free (as in free speech), software and hardware!

Reliable Office  
5.0
 
written over 1 year ago

I have been using Openoffice for almost a decade now. I have it installed on all the three laptops we have at home and the laptop I have at work also uses the same. It is very reliable and does almost everything that you can do with Microsoft Office. Openoffice Writer can read the .docx file type, but cannot write in .docx format. Openoffice Calc can read Excel worksheets and write as well. Some of my worksheets are secured with a password and the security functionality transfers as well. Openoffice is currently pushing for its use in education which will help in extending its deployment and reach.
