Editors' Review


A credible rival to MS Office, OpenOffice.org includes powerful applications for making text documents, spreadsheets, presentations, diagrams, and databases, as well as HTML and XML documents. Not only does it let you edit basic documents, such as letters and faxes, it also handles equations, complex and multipart documents with bibliographies, reference tables, and indexes.

The interface is similar to that of MS Office users, and even advanced Office users will find almost everything they're used to: templates, collaborative features (versions, recording changes), macros, and even a programming language. OOo, as it's known, lets you open and save documents in formats as diverse as MS Office, PDF, HTML, and XML. It can also import files from those formats, as well as the WordPerfect format and others. However, it normally saves files in the open-standard Oasis OpenDocument XML format, for maximum compatibility with other applications.

The latest versions of OpenOffice have seen a spurt of growth in the extensions available for the program. These include templates for professional writers, an export tool for bidirectional functionality with Google Docs, blog publishing, and others. Blog publishing assistance especially strikes us as a natural area for word processing to grow towards.

We were pleased to find that stability has improved too. No doubt about it, the multilingual and cross-platform OpenOffice.org is a compelling option for anyone in search of an alternative office suite.

"TextEdit is actually better"

January 24, 2008  |  By humansare

 |  Version: OpenOffice.org (PowerPC Mac) 2.3


has all of the tools that microsoft office has. very comprehensive


glitchy and buggy especially on startup... i hate how x11 starts up every time and i hate that the menu/file/edit bar is in the application and i constantly go to the top of my screen, only to find "X11" there

maybe it takes some getting used to, but it seems somewhat unstable. easy to download and install though, just go to their site if your mac has in intel processor (this is for powerpc only)
