The latest and full featured version of OpenOffice.org 3.0 is now available through Ulteo.com using a web browser with only a single click of a mouse. No download or installation process of the productivity suite is required. This new service by Ulteo offers many benefits for users of the productivity suite, and is compatible with any operating system that can run Firefox 2.0+ or Internet Explorer 6.0+.
Making OpenOffice.org 3.0 available through a browser should also help accelerate its adoption by an even broader userbase. Users can introduce OpenOffice.org 3.0 to others via email, invite them to discover OpenOffice.org with just one click, and can give a personal tour of the program in real time. Invitations are sent via email and allow access in either read only or full edit mode, simply by clicking on a link in the email. Using Ulteo's service, users can exploit features of OpenOffice.org which may be missing from their current desktop software. For example, OpenOffice.org can read and write Microsoft Office files, and generate .pdf format files without requiring any additional software. OpenOffice.org also reads and writes documents in Open Document Format, the ISO approved standard for office
documents, which can only be read in Microsoft Office after installing a plug-in.
