OpenOffice vs Microsoft Office: Which one??

So, many of you know my sincere and utter disliking to Microsoft.  That is not to say they do not have great products… I can name a few (and only a few) that are superb products (and the majority of those were done by acquisition).

Microsoft Office is not one of them.  OpenOffice is a fantastic business productivity suite that is perfect for your small business, and most likely, even for your medium-sized businesses.  Your Large Businesses can afford to waste money to Microsoft (grin… sorry… had to say it).  No, they just have the resources to make the most out of Microsoft Office.

So, which is better?  Well, TechTarget has an article that describes just that.  They do not actually choose, but they give you some research and some opinions to help YOU choose.

Personally, I love OpenOffice.  I am also very impressed that the next version of OpenOffice will include Pentaho’s Business Reporting software.  Definately a good move, if they want to take on the Microsoft Giant.  Can’t wait to see it.  It’s planned for OpenOffice 2.3.

As I’ve mentioned in a previous post, I use OpenOffice for 80% of my needs, and no one (i.e. other Microsoft Office users) seems to notice a thing.

    If you like OpenOffice, may I invite you to a new tech support site specializing in OOo?

    It is web based support with hundreds of screencasts and a smart search engine that learns and understands the user’s language as opposed to the applications jargon. Try i tout and let me know what you think.
