myReview   

I have been an MS Office user for almost 10 years now and I have grown to love it but the recently with the new improvement of OpenOffice.org 2.x I do not see the need of using MS Office anymore. OpenOffice.org 2.x features is closed to MS Office 2003 which I think it is suiteable for most user. One of the thing that I love most with OpenOffice.org is the OOo.org Writer, It can save text document in a clean and simple HTML. Unline MS Word which also alows you to save in HTML format but put so many information on the saved file that it will grow 3x -4x from normal HTML.

Although OOo.org is free but it is a very powerful and feature pack that is good for majority of users. Especially if you're in school or college which do not have budget like business company budget. I strongly you tried OpenOffice.org.

The only thing that is missing for me is the search and replace features in OpenOffice.org is not as powerful as MS Office. So if you use search and replace regularly using a wildcard / regular expression than you will certainly not able to do much in OpenOffice.org
