OpenOffice.org beats Microsoft Word

 

Bruce Byfield of Linux.com positively positions OpenOffice.org 2.3 vs. Office 2007 in a word processor shootout evaluation. In his third review over the last 5 years of the two office suites, Sun wins out over Microsoft, again. In his prior two comparisons, OpenOffice.org emerged as superior for its greater stability. This year, he compares the two programs on tools that intermediate and advanced users are likely to use. Interfaces, Styles, Page layout, Bulleted lists, Headers/Footers, Footnotes/Endnotes, Indexes/TOCs and Master documents are some of the categories that OpenOffice.org bested Office 2007 in this latest review.

Writer emerges as the winner in the majority of categories with Bruce stating, "As free software, Writer has advantages that Word is unlikely to match -- its philosophy, its price, its easy availability, and its frequent updates."

Smart Computing declares StarOffice 8 WINNER over Office 2007 in latest office roundup


Jeff Dodd's office productivity suite comparative review posted today, and StarOffice 8 is the WINNER !!! (And yes, Microsoft Office 2007 was in the mix.)

You might need to register with the site to read the review, and the registration is free.

StarOffice 8 received Smart Computing's "Smart Distinction" award beating out Microsoft Office 2007, Corel WordPerfect Office X3 and Ability Office.

Jeff notes that each of the five components of StarOffice 8, "stand out as a competitive program in its own right, loaded with features and intuitive interfaces.

He also states that, "Users can purchase Sun’s productivity suite for less than half the price of the cheapest edition of Microsoft Office. And users can run the product on as many as five individual computers at the same time. Better yet, customers can place up to three free phone calls to technical support in the first 60 days of usage. No other productivity suite featured in this roundup can say as much."

He concludes his review with the following endorsement of StarOffice 8, "...most users will continue to invest in Microsoft (and, to a lesser extent, Corel) software simply out of habit. We encourage users to consider alternatives such as Sun’s StarOffice 8, which earns our Smart Choice designation once again. Why spend $150 or $300 when you can get top-of-the-line capabilities for less than $75?"  

StarOffice 8 is the RIGHT choice, OF COURSE !!!
