Features, Office Last week, IBM unveiled the first version of their OpenOffice.org offshoot, Lotus Symphony. Symphony is aimed at professional users in a corporate environment, but brings to OpenOffice.org many UI enhancements in an attractive, single tabbed interface. Symphony 1.0 runs on Windows and Linux; while the site used to suggest a Mac version was forthcoming, there is currently no reference to a Mac native version of Symphony. The Lotus Symphony website has been updated to reflect the recent release, however, downloads are very slow at the moment "due to high demand."

OOo's speed is much improved but stay away from this Lotus Symphony garbage. I used to work for IBM and I can tell you that they really decided to suck on the Java-everywhere crack pipe.

Their apps do some interesting things but the performance hit with their implementations is horrendoous.
If you need to run more than one of their apps in a production environment, I suggest that you don't go cheap on your desktops and laptops.
You should also consider QOS if you run their messaging tool, SameTime
