Features, Office The OpenOffice Project has sent a letter to Michael Dell, showering praise on Dell's chairman and CEO and asking him to consider pre-loading OpenOffice onto PCs. The letter is the result of a flood of requests on Dell's online suggestion box, IdeaStorm, for Dell PCs pre-loaded with both Linux operating systems and the open-source suite of desktop productivity applications. John McCreesh, marketing project lead for OpenOffice.org, also asked Dell to consider making a financial contribution to the software's development.

I haven't seen a Word Processing Suite yet who's format WASN'T non-intuitive in some major ways. Open Office is no worse in that respect than any of the others, but it could certainly stand some improvement anyway.
