    "The Free Office Suite"

    June 9, 2012  |   By CNETproductions

    Version: OpenOffice.org 3.3

    Pros

    OpenOffice is free

    Cons

    -Long download
    -Huge file
    -Slow startup
    -Bad interface
    -Complicated
    -Lacks features

    Summary

    In my opinion, the only Pro to Openoffice is it's free and requires no charge. For users who want a free Office Suite, i recommend LibreOffice.

    "It is the simplest and best program on my system"

    May 16, 2012  |   By wheelchairpete

    Version: OpenOffice.org 3.3

    Pros

    The easy to understand operation puts it head and shoulders above the competitors. I have had three strokes and rely upon the ease of layout to get letters written. Open Office is the only one I can get full benefit of a word prosessor.

    Cons

    Haven't found one yet!

    Summary

    I would recommend this program to everyone. It is a rolls Royce amongst pretenders.

    Summary

    May 10, 2012
    I see a lot of negative votes here...! M-m-m..!! Well, just like that funny lawyer said in ''My Cousin Vinny'' - ''EVERYTHING THAT GUY JUST SAID IT'S B...!!!''. Well, same here: ''Everything those people just said is b...''. Don't believe them! Open Office is a great program. I had it for the last 5 years and I love it. I give it a big ''10''!! Thank you dear inventors of Open Office! May you live long and prosper!

    "It works fine, BUT"

    May 9, 2012  |   By flntlok

    Version: OpenOffice.org 3.3

    Pros

    Looks like all the goodies of Microsoft's product, and, best of all, it's free.
    Easy to use; simple interface; choice at install as to what products you want to install.

    Cons

    I'm using Windows 7 so that may be the reason for the one problem I have encountered so far. That problem is that the program will not connect to the provider for updates or even to register the product! But, as long as the software does the few things I need it to do - mainly word processing - I have no problem with that.

    Summary

    I just started using this so time will tell.

    Updated on May 16, 2012

    So far the only problem I'm having is the software's inability to update. When I click the update button all I get is a "page no longer available" screen. I assume this is because the program isn't fully compatable with Win7 - which is my OS. But it works fine otherwise.

    Summary

    "Did not install program, see "Cons"."

    April 13, 2012  |   By stanleyjadde

    Version: OpenOffice.org 3.3

    Pros

    Do not have any, see "Cons"

    Cons

    I downloaded the CNET offering of OpenOffice 3.3 three times. I need to install it on my second hard drive "D",because of space limitations on my main drive "C". I tried all three times to get the program to install on "D", trying everything I could given what I was/am offered for doing so. All three times the install program ended up on "C".
