Features, Office The news of OpenOffice.org's third major release has generated quite a bit of buzz on the internet for many reasons, one of which being that it now runs natively on a Mac (sans X11). ZDnet has posted a screenshot gallery of OpenOffice.org 3.0 for those who have yet to try the hot-off-the-press application.

Their argument is that they didn't include exporting because it would make end users dependent on OOXML when they (developers/Sun/etc) are trying to move people to ODF.


Politics, politics, darn politics...

Seeing OOS software playing this game to retain and expand their user-base is kinda sickening, but hey it works... maybe...
