pclinuxos2007.blogspot: Only yesterday I tried OpenOffice 3.0 final. It is a mega release of OpenOffice in many ways. Even it was the much hyped release of OO.o. Overall it seems a complete overhaul of the venerable open source office suite. There are dozens of new features and improvements.

blogs.eweek: For the past six years or so, I've watched the suite progress slowly but steadily toward the goal of being "just as good" as Microsoft Office. For my needs, OpenOffice.org has been better than good enough. Given the rise of these Web-based alternatives it's worth asking whether OpenOffice.org will continue to matter as we move forward.
OOo Release Candidate 4 is available. If all goes well, this is the last RC before 3.0 comes out.
Glyn Moody: All around the world, it seems, people just can't get enough of this amazing free office suite, which is now turning in serious market shares in some countries.
