Why Switch To OpenOffice.org?

It's Free (as in no cost)

 

Yes, difficult as it is for some people to believe, OpenOffice.org is a free download. How much did you pay for MS Office again?

It's Free (as in free speech)

 

OpenOffice.org is licensed under the GPL. Additionally, the SXW file format (used by OpenOffice.org) is an open, published standard. The MS Office file format is owned by MS and is not an open published standard. What does this mean? It means that 5 or 10 years from now it will be easy for you to find a program to open your old SXW files but will not be able to open your old MS Office files unless MS allows you.

Files covert easily and effortlessly

 

OpenOffice.org reads and writes to the MS file format with ease. OpenOffice.org even has a tool for mass conversions. I was able to convert my 195 recipe files in under 5 minutes! Better yet, the OpenOffice.org file format is a much cleaner and compact format. My average recipe file is 25k in MS Office but only 8K in OpenOffice.org.

It's better

 

OpenOffice.org has many new features which MS Office does not such as a direct save to the PDF and Flash formats, easy integration with databases excellent XML support and more!

It's cool (and soon everyone else will be doing it)

 

Why pay money for yesterday's bloated, stodgy, buggy, insecure software when you can use tomorrow's killer app today? Be the first in your office to join the wave of the future!
