Editors' Review


OpenOffice.org is a great piece of open-source software, but there's no denying it's more than a bit bulky and sluggish. There's no need to worry, though, since there's a fork of the source code called Go-OO that picks up most of OpenOffice's slack.

Go-OO sports an enhanced interface and is much easier to use, with larger icons and less clutter. It still sports drop-down menus for fast customization, but there's no doubt that Go-OO comes with a cleaner layout. It also comes with an importer to handle DOCX, XLSX, and PPTX formats, and natively supports SVG files. Graphics rendering is greatly improved, too, including VBA support, Mono integration, better display of Chinese characters, support for WordPerfect graphics, and EMF rendering.

OpenOffice must be uninstalled before Go-OO is loaded, but that's a minor annoyance. Whereas Flock, for example, is a Firefox fork geared for a particular kind of user, Go-OO should appeal to anybody who loves OpenOffice but is looking for something that's leaner--but hardly meaner.

"i liked this so much i put it on both of my compurters."

September 28, 2009  |  By jannwy75

 |  Version: Go-OO 3.1-10


all my paper work from the state converts over eaisly.


I have not found any problems with this programs.


I am a personal attendant for my son. I have to turn my paper work to the state monthly. When I bought my new compurters I bought them with only foxfire on them. I got them refurbished to save money. I downloaded this program to save money again.. All the forms from the state can be downloaded as templets. I never have to make any changes. I fill in all my forms on here with no problem. You would think they were made for this program instead of Works. I don't see me ever using works again.
