OpenOffice.org

Postby HBG-p40 » Thu Jan 18, 2007 9:11 pm

I've put OpenOffice on all the 'puters in my stake because it's free and works well with the Microsoft office suite on everyone's home computers. When there's an internet connection, it even tells you when you need to download updates.....
Maybe a link to that site would be a good thing?

You could always order the cd for a minimal charge. Try even downloading a legal copy of MS Office for distribution!

Hmm takes about 4 times longer for MS Office when I clocked it. Now of course that was only a legal copy of MS Office 2007 Pro (450 MB) which contains the same features as OO (98MB + 13.16MB (Java Distro)) though a difference of 5 mins to 1 min and 30 secs isn't too bad. :D

That was my point! MSO is not designed for web distribution. I wouldn't even attempt it on my home dial-up connection. (I'll now accept your pity.)

Dial-up, I wouldn't even attempt OO. But remember that MSO comes with all that Clip Art stuff which only comes on Open Office's CD version. But still I can see your point.
