Open Office 3.2: Faster, More Office Compatibility

Filed under
OOo

The concept of an office suite, with word processing, spreadsheet and presentation software, is one that is well understood by users, which is also why it's often difficult to improve them. Users already expect their office suites to do certain things, making the job of office suite developers often one of fit and finish.

That's the case with the new open source OpenOffice.org 3.2 (OOo) office suite release this week.

OOo is included in nearly every Linux vendor's distribution while also being available for a number of other operating systems, including Windows. With the OOo 3.2 release, developers have fixed bugs, made the suite faster and improved compatibility with file formats from Microsoft.

The release also comes during a period of transition, as Sun Microsystems -- the leader of the OOo effort -- is now part of Oracle.
