  OpenOffice 2.0 is out!
Although its been long due, OpenOffice is now poised to be one of the premier office suites with the release of version 2.0. I've made my mind to completely switch to OpenOffice about 6 months ago when betas were rolling out. Surprisingly, I found it very easy to use and intiutive just like Microsoft Office. There are so many new features in OpenOffice that shouldn't be overlooked. One of my favorites happens to be Microsoft Office compatibility. I usually view all my PowerPoint, Excel, and Word documents from Google using OpenOffice. The greatest thing that I believe OpenOffice will have to offer is cross-platform compatibility, in particular Linux compatability. Until now Linux has lacked a legitimate office suite that would allow users to do what could be done with an office suite like Microsoft Office. Sooner or later I wish to transition over to Kubuntu, although I know the maturity of Linux applications is still not comparable to current Microsoft Windows applications. However, Linux still seems to be growing substantially, one giant step at a time. Here are more screenshots of of OpenOffice!
