    "Absolutely a great solution for home or student"

    March 28, 2009  |   By Mahonex

    Version: OpenOffice.org 2

    Pros

    very easily works between MS applications and Open Office. I haven't experienced any problems.

    Cons

    none to date, and I've been using these tools for 13 months.

    Summary

    Can't beat the value here.

    "Potentially useful... if you have won the national spelling bee."

    January 30, 2006  |   By bugmenow

    Version: OpenOffice.org 2

    Pros

    It's a free program that can create MS Word format documents.

    It's open source.

    Cons

    Unless you've won the national spelling bee you might find its extremely unintuitive (non-working? nonexistent? overly complicated? pathetic?) spellcheck function a hassle.

    If you're an everyday user and you want something that's useable then perhaps look elsewhere. If this product really wants to compete with MS Word then it might be an idea to not alienate the users out there who aren't programmers by making it easy to get up and running effectively (i.e. with the same easy to use features as Word). At the moment this seems more like an ugly 'poor-mans' version of Word.

    "Some of the Best Freeware Available"

    January 28, 2006  |   By britishboy5

    Version: OpenOffice.org 2

    Pros

    This program can be used to create spreadsheets, presentations, databases, and any word processing document. All programs are fully compatible with their Microsoft counterparts. However, this is completely FREE!

    Cons

    -No email program or caldendar (just download Thunderbird and Sunbird for free)

    -No Publisher clone

    "The best office pack yet. . .and it's free"

    January 26, 2006  |   By elshunko

    Version: OpenOffice.org 2

    Pros

    Easy to use and very similar to other applications. Great recovery as well!

    Cons

    Not eveyone uses .odt, . . .ect., but the .doc,. . .is still there for you if you need to share a file with someone who does not have open office.

    "Excellent freeware alternative to Microsoft Office, but MS Office is still bette"

    January 22, 2006  |   By CableguyTK

    Version: OpenOffice.org 2

    Pros

    Its free.

    It includes all the programs you would normally find with MS Office...Word, Excel, Access, etc.

    I think there is a deeper level of customization with this over MS Office.

    Cons

    It might be free, but MS Office is still better. MS Office feels better and supports more stuff that people usually put into documents. Open Office has a long ways to go in my opinion.

    Pretty big download size.

    "Office XP? Why?!"

    January 15, 2006  |   By Thirsty Ferret

    Version: OpenOffice.org 2

    Pros

    This is phenomenal. Excellent replacement to Office, and has better integration between programs, e.g. bettern mail merge.

    The quick launch-style menu in the system tray saves a bunch of time.

    The price is the best bit, though.

    Cons

    Takes a little while to load on my machine(?)

    "a very sophisticated office suite"

    January 12, 2006  |   By martinw1200

    Version: OpenOffice.org 2

    Pros

    I was not about to buy MS Word a third time! Somehow MS rigged it so that documents from the newest version of Office would not work on versions just a few years old.

    Enter OpenOffice:

    OpenOffice is probably about as good as, say, MS Office 97. (Plus a few added features.) It has way more features than most people will ever use. It's compatible with documents from all the main word processor and office programs and even some I'd never heard of.

    It will open MS Office documents from the latest version of Office, proving that the incompatibility thing was rigged.

    If you're getting tired of being forced to upgrade every couple years, get OpenOffice. It will do everything you need very well.

    Cons

    Not enough people know about it.

    "OpenOffice>MS Office"

    January 3, 2006  |   By ksax

    Version: OpenOffice.org 2

    Pros

    OpenOffice is WAY better than MS Office. Price was no comparison. OpenOffice is forwards & backwards compatable with MS Office (I tend to save in .doc form for easy emailing.) It also has a lot of updates. Very little trouble typing. Like that anyone can update it but not make it worse!

    Cons

    It has a tendancy to crash (but so does MS Office), no e-mail/calendar program (i would like the calendar) and sometimes there are just too many updates!
