Features, Office OpenOffice.org has been increasing in both popularity and visibility over the past several months. Version 2.0 has added a number of new features to bring it closer to feature parity with Microsoft Office, and it also offers full support for the Open Document format. However, a report just released by the French Ministry of Defense says that it still falls short of Microsoft's office suite in one important area: security.

I work for a US Air Force program full of SW devs that are responsible for coding applications that track over a billion dollars in gov't assets. I cannot tell you how pissed the program office would be if their devs had to stop working on their primary jobs to bug fix a word processor. "you can just fix it yourself!" is one of the worst reasons I hear for using open source.
