Features, Office Version 2.4 of the OpenOffice productivity suite was released on Thursday, boasting enhancements to all its core components. Possibly the most significant alteration in the new version of the free suite is in the description of file types. The 'OpenDocument' description has been replaced by 'ODF', which stands for 'OpenDocument Format' and is becoming a well-known acronym thanks to rivalry with Microsoft's controversial OOXML format.

How many features uses the average user

I think the average user does not use over 50% of all the features in MS-Office. Even if they have OOo they will not use all of his features.

So OOo will do for the majority. If you manage a business it should be the manager to decide, not his employees what office-software is used. There are loads of arguments not to use MS-Office, so a smart manager choses OOo and, only those that can actually show that a feature they cannot work without is only available in Ms-office might get a licence. This will save a lot of money for every business.

Some here seem to think that managing a business is just to give employees everything the demand, sorry to say so but the world is not like that.
