Head to Head: Office 2010 vs Open Office 3.1

Filed under
OOo

In this head to head we are focusing on the two most popular suites of office software on the market today. While some people consider the comparison a little one sided, we thought it was time to give Open Office a chance to stand up to the heavyweight that is Microsoft’s 20-year old Office, in its latest beta incarnation.

We have chosen these two big-hitters because of the wealth of support and features available but we’d like to offer a nod to Google Docs, a suite which we see as a potential contender for the future, when it makes up part of the upcoming Chrome OS.

So without further ado, let’s get ready to rumble...




Office '10 vs OOo 3.1 updated

itpro.co.uk: Some may suggest this is a David and Goliath-esque battle as Open Office recently celebrated its 100 millionth download since version 3.0 was made available and Microsoft Office is believed to be used by more than 500 million people worldwide. But we have chosen these two big-hitters because of the wealth of support and features available.

Following the review period, Open Office 3.2 was released offering a few more features that have not been compared or explored in this comparison due to the fact that the entire review compared version 3.1 and the Office 2010 beta in depth. Our intention is to compare the latest version of Open Office and Office 2010 again when the final Microsoft product is released later this year.
