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 The 'OpenDocument' description has been replaced by 'ODF', which stands for 'OpenDocument Format' and is becoming a well-known acronym thanks to rivalry with Microsoft's controversial OOXML format.

The cost of MS Office is not only the initial money cost. Part of the cost of it and all proprietary software is the threat of a BSA audit ( http://preview.tinyurl.com/yplaw6 ). I don't feel like keeping track of CDs and invoices. If it's my butt on the line, employees don't get whatever they want.
