OpenOffice Beta Review
The latest version of OpenOffice is still in beta, but the Associated Press has provided a review. It looks like OpenOffice can now be a real alternative to the Microsoft Office suite. It can open Word, Excel, and WordPerfect files, and it’s files open within MS Office. It has database and presentation programs similar to Access and PowerPoint. You can save documents as PDF. It does not, however, have an email/calendaring program.
