OpenOffice2 Was Released Today
Feel free to download OpenOffice2 for any of the following platforms:
Mac OS X (10.2+)...I recommend getting "NeoOffice/J"
In addition to a new updated look & feel and improved functionality, OOo2 offers the open XML OASIS OpenDocument file format(s) as the native default format(s) for your text document, spreadsheets, presentations and other types of file creations.
I downloaded(from the Denmark mirror; all North American mirrors I tried were busy), installed and set up OOo2 on Windows XP in under 15 mins (RoadRunner NYC). The Windows installer is nicely streamlined and easier than the previous one; the splash screen looks&feels like the leather seats of a BMW 500 series (this is special to me because I drive an '87 VW); and it picked up some of my settings from the existing OOo1.9.xy on my system.
Congratulations to the team.
