A Prentice Hall Title
It used to be that the saying "You get what you pay for" ranked up there with such indisputable truths as, "What goes up must come down," "Water is wet," and "I had to restart Windows today." But since OpenOffice.org is free, "you get what you pay for" is not only disputable, but down there with "the board of directors said the accounting practices were OK" and "hey, let's form an Internet startup."
Want to do a holiday newsletter as a mail merge, printing out a
copy for each of the 135 people on your address list? It's really
easy. Put together a book? You've got all the tools you need. Do
complex statistical or mathematical calculations in a spreadsheet?
Ditto. Create a Web site
This release of OpenOffice.org also has a bunch of enhancements over StarOffice 5.2. We're satisfied and impressed that the developers incorporated lots of good feedback.
What goes up must come down. Water is wet. OpenOffice.org is free.
(And yes, I really did have to restart Windows today.)
