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.

Developer's Description

Create and edit all kinds of documents with strong OpenXML support.
Go-OO is an OpenOffice. org fork that features faster load and response times, and several features not included in the standard version of the program. Go-OO's user interface is more familiar, with lots of small pieces of polish. Go-OO has built in OpenXML import filters and it will import your Microsoft Works files. It has better Microsoft binary file support (with eg. fields support), and it will import WordPerfect graphics beautifully. If you are reliant on Excel VBA macros, then Go-OO offers the best macro fidelity too. If you expect your spreadsheets to calculate compatibly, or you get embedded Visio diagrams in your documents, you'll want Go-OO.
