OpenOffice 3.0 Wants to Compete with Outlook

Filed under
OOo

I was just over at the OpenOffice site browsing through some of their marketing materials to see if there was anything interesting. I came across a presentation that was given on September 19th at the OpenOffice 2007 Conference. The presentation was called “OpenOffice.org 3.0 and Beyond,” and it walked through some of the most notable features that are expected to be released in the next big OpenOffice milestone.

The presentation was actually pretty interesting to flip through, but the one thing that really caught my attention was their reference to including a Personal Information Manager (PIM). More specifically the presentation mentions bundling Thunderbird with their Office Suite, and refers to it as an “Outlook replacement.” This is all assuming that Thunderbird recently losing two of it’s main developers doesn’t affect the decision, because I’m sure OpenOffice wants to ensure that Thunderbird will continue to progress before including it.
