Forget About Microsoft Office with OpenOffice.org 2.3
Posted by telecommatt on September 17, 2007
Even if you missed your chance at an early download, OpenOffice.org is an absolutely must-have software suite. I do most of my document editing online, but this Microsoft Office killer is one of the first pieces of software I install on a new machine.

2.3 will officially be released on Monday. But if you’re the impatient
sort, you can download it this weekend. The software has been
distributed to download mirrors including OSUOSL a few days early in order to make launch day run a bit more smoothly.All
you have to do is select OpenOffice.org 2.3, choose your operating
system and language, and away you go. There are a ton of bug fixes and
feature updates since OpenOffice 2.2 was launched. Here are just a few.
- New export filter for writing Wiki pages
- Spell check 1 letter words
- New chart wizard
- A whole slew of new local data including Jewish holidays in the US, and updated currency in Venezuela
- Language guessing for unknown text
You can find more updates in the release notes.
