Great program. Doesn't quite match up to MS Office in some respects, but that said, MS Office has screwed me about a few times too many.

And being a student, IMO all free stuff owns

Agreed. I used to use it on a now ageing laptop, but was frustrated by the load times. Perversely, Office 2007 loads much quicker.

This isn't a slight against OOo, I think it's a great suite. We use it at work because you can export files directly to PDF without any other plugins/software.

i love OpenOffice, it makes me sick when i think how expensive is MS Office :x

Yeah.. It's expensive but luckily I got it from work for about 28€.. Home user program...
If you're at school or at work they might have some discounts.
But anyway there's nothing wrong with open office.

In my opinion, that argument held water until the arrival of Office 2007.

The student suite may be a bit out of range for some of you. But it's worth it though some of the new techniques and time savers I found and got through using the 2007 suite applications.

Website shows 2.2.0 as stable, but the Mirrors are up and running. look at the ftp directorys, it is stable! Website is updated when all Major Mirrors are updated.

Can't live without it, so much better then microsofts products, just cause the file format is smaller, compact, but very useful. I rember reading they won an award for it.

Here is some info on that: http://www.openoffice.org/awards/index.html

Never once have i had this crash on me, or ever have a problem, its a sturdy but useable program.
