Publishers Description
See other freeware hotpicks
OpenOffice.org is an Open Source, community-developed, multiplatform office-productivity suite. It includes the key desktop applications, such as a word processor, spreadsheet, presentation manager, and drawing program, with a user interface and feature set similar to other office suites.
Sophisticated and flexible, OpenOffice.org also works transparently with a variety of file formats, including Microsoft´s.

Localizations of OpenOffice.org are available in 27 languages with more being constantly added by the community. OpenOffice.org runs stably and natively on Solaris, Linux (including PPC Linux), and Windows. Additional ports, such as for FreeBSD, IRIX, and Mac OS X, are in various stages of completion.

Written in C++ and with documented APIs licensed under the LGPL and SISSL Open Source licenses, OpenOffice.org allows any knowledgeable developer to benefit from the source. And, because the file format for OpenOffice.org is in XML, interoperability is easy, making future development and adoption more certain.

When we last updated OpenOffice.org, we made sure it was still virus and malware free and the developer's site had no proven issues in any of the reputable site advisory services. In the unlikely event you notice any issues, please let us know immediately, otherwise we will schedule this software for another scan the next time it is updated.

Let's hope Oracle don't screw this fine office package up for us all!!

It really was only a matter of time before something like this happened - I cringed when I heard Oracle were taking over this and other fantastic software, one of which I believe is MySQL which could cause no end of grief to anyone (inlcuding FreewareBB) who currently uses MySQL for their entire databases should Oracle decide to make it shareware or commercial.
Who cares for OpenOffice ...
Long live LibreOffice !

also, IBM has "Symphony office."

Free, but requires registration.
I have to agree with previous comments. It's all a shame really but as Bala points out, there are still very nice alternatives to MS Office available.

LibreOffice is only going to get better and better as development gains momentum.

Lotus Symphony is most underrated, very good software which supports a tabbed workspace. It is a tad complicated however, probably suited more for those with at least moderate experience.
A scenario here.  Could Oracle be using the project to develop a for pay software?  If so could this be a positive overall for freeware, especially office suites?

Many years ago I had an eMachines machine that came stock with an Office Suite of programs by Sun.  It was so much different in terminology than the Works and Office programs from MS that I had some difficulty picking up the lingo to get much from the program.  But I have since been eyeballing OpenOffice as something Sun could be using to develop their own line of programs for the retail marketplace.

If so, this could end up being a positive overall for freeware.  I seriously doubt Sun would jeopardize their reputation with PC users who could be potential buyers of their software by abandoning the the Open Office project.  Actually, the exact opposite could happen...a real drive to take compatibility to a new level with office suites.  The idea at Sun could be "let's see business through the transition to a much finer office suite with the Open Source programs, then be there with our $1500 a copy game changer to save the day at the right time.

I think if anything this represents a real across the bow for Microsoft...

By the way, anyone up on OxygenOffice Professional?  This could be the project that Sun will have to ultimately answer to with regards to compatibility issues if they are indeed looking at taking the Office concept of software to the hilt.  Could be MS will be completely cut out of the loop and that freeware will more or less take over.

Imagine a mind bogglingly good for pay software from Sun which boasts full compatibility with the little brother freeware, Open Office, that it helped create just for the purpose of taking the whole Office concept to its potential.  I am LOL really about this.  Much as Microsoft has been so good for so long and as reliable as MS Office is, they may be totally blown out of the water.  I am really beginning to almost expect it given what I have seen from Open Sourcing over the years.  I really didn't expect OO to last this long...

I am half expecting an Apple type of venture from Sun in the not too distant future..."machine and software are one"...
This is not developed by Oracle any more. Thay handed it over to Apache Software Foundation. Lets hope it will recieve more attention from it's new owners.

Oracle drops OpenOffice on Apache, shuns forkers, LibreOffice re-unification rejected.

IBM Lotus Symphony has now joined the dust bin of history. Most all of the IBM code was donated to Apache OpenOffice. v.3.4.0 is a clean-up code release from previous versions with updates incorporating the IBM code shortly.

@FutureShock, Oracle did have a payfor version of OOo called "Star Office" but it's unlikely at the present time Apache would follow this approach. More likely, the Office package will remain free but support will be fee based.
Hey, Bala...I think Star Office was the one on the eMachines PC I had many years ago...thanks...
