I'm Trying OpenOffice.org. How do I learn more?

Filed under
Just talk

Yesterday we looked at the similarities between OpenOffice.org
Writer and the word processor you are already familiar with - whether
that is Microsoft Word or something else. It’s reassuring to know that
some things feel familiar.

projects and support sites.
