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.

But it’s also nice to get below the surface and learn something new.
You might be a fiddler, and feel your way through the program by trial
and error. Or you might like to use some of the many resources
available on the Internet.

If you’ve already had a look around the program, you might also be

projects and support sites.
