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.
gnome.org/~michael/blog: Is success measured in downloads, or up-loads ? are bugs filed as good as bugs fixed ? are volunteer marketers as valuable as volunteer developers ? Alternatively does success come through attracting and empowering developers, who have such fun writing the code that they volunteer their life, allegiance and dreams to improve it ?
blogs.zdnet: OpenOffice.org 3.0 Final has already been uploaded to a variety of mirror download sites ahead of the official announcement Monday 13.
ubuntulinuxtipstricks.blogspot: OpenOffice.org Impress makes LaTeX + Beamer look user-friendly. Now that I've gone through turning my OLF slides from boring black-on-white to prettier, I realize how much of a usability nightmare Impress is.
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.
polishlinux.org: We have begun this series of articles focusing on Free Software deployments in Polish government departments with the article OpenOffice.org in Łeba. Today we are introducing yet another example of a well-done implementation of OpenOffice.org, in Town Council of Katowice.
oooninja.com: OpenOffice.org comes in several editions produced by different groups. Each edition has its own features, performance improvements, bug fixes, and new bugs. Go-oo in particular boasts performance as a feature with its the slogan, "Better, Faster, Freer," but is there truth in advertising?
ooomarketing.blogspot: Today, OpenOffice.org 3.0 RC3 is available. If all goes well, this will be the final RC before the planned product release, so stay tuned!
The release candidate 2 of OpenOffice.org 3.0 is now ready for testing. This test release is made available to allow a broad user base to test and evaluate the next major version of OpenOffice.org, but is not recommended for production use at this stage.
blogs.pcworld.co.nz: A number of distributions mess around with OpenOffice.org and release their own versions. Personally, I prefer the unadulterated version. Not only do you get all the features, but you can also upgrade the moment the latest release is out and not have to wait for your distro's package maintainers to catch up.
linux.com: Mail merge, the production of multiple documents that differ only in minor details, remains a difficult task in OpenOffice.org Writer. Few use the function regularly, and when they do, the mail merge wizard seems to cause as much confusion as it resolves. FastMailMerge is not only simplicity itself, but a welcome relief that easily lives up to its name.
ostatic.com: OpenOffice.org is in an unenviable place. Office suites -- word processors, spreadsheets, presentations and the ilk -- are utilitarian, complex bundles of software. They are a necessity of modern life, used daily by individuals and businesses all over the world.
sjvn: This is more than a little cool. Those of us who don't like paying the Microsoft Office suite tax have been waiting for the next version of OpenOffice for some time now and it's almost ready to go.
linux-magazine.com: Want to expand OpenOffice.org's default functionality? The official extension repository has quite a few extensions you can use to add some nifty features to the productivity suite. Precisely which extensions you might find useful depends, of course, on your particular needs, but there are at least five extensions that deserve a closer look no matter how you use OpenOffice.org.
