OpenOffice.org

From LXF Wiki

OpenOffice.org, or OOo, is Sun Microsystems' free office productivity suite. Nowadays it is getting really rather nice, although it still lacks polish in some areas.

Clones include:

  • StarOffice - Sun's non-free version with added bits'n'bobs.
  • Go-OOo - a D-I-Y breakaway by some folk frustrated by the slowness of Sun's development activity, and the default install on Debian Lenny. Is Go-OOo a fork or just a bit of parallel development? Nobody seems to be quite sure yet, not even the folk at Go-OOo.
