I hope it beats OOo

Been using OOo2 (1.9.129) and if SO isn't any better they'll soon get customers running back to MS.

It's just full of glitches. Small things, but irritating.

It's a beta in case you didn't know. That is why when you launch the program, it says "OpenOffice.org 2.0 Beta". In-case you weren't aware, betas are released so people can find bugs and report them to the vendor. So, since that is the point of a beta, here's a thought, submit a bug report and maybe, just maybe, those bugs might get fixed!!! :-O What a thought eh?

Yeah, sure. In some 5 years, maybe, if OOo is still around. I have some 4 years old issues reported that still are not fixed.
