You Tried OpenOffice.org. Where do we go from here?

Filed under
Just talk

Over the last four days, we have been taking a tour of
OpenOffice.org Writer. We have explored some of its features which may
feel familiar to you, as well as looking at some features which may
give you a whole new way of working.

How did you find the journey? If you haven’t taken time to sit down
in front of your computer and actually follow the tutorials step by
step, consider doing that now. Most people learn much better by doing
rather than just reading.

The main thing to remember is to stick with it. Even if certain
procedures feel awkward or foreign to begin with, they will become much
more natural over time. For anything more complicated than a simple
letter, I encourage you to start using styles. Styles will unlock the
power of OpenOffice.org like nothing else will. Start with paragraph
styles, and go from there.
