re: If OO.org is still in beta ...

"And StarOffice 8 is based on that, then what does that make StarOffice? And people accuse MS of releasing products that are still beta ;) "

Actually, the exact opposite is true. The fact that StarOffice 8 finally shipped is very, very good news for OO users. Because both OpenOffice and StarOffice are owned and developed by Sun, Sun has a policy of releasing StarOffice first. Then in a few weeks or a month, Sun moves OpenOffice into stable and makes an OpenOffice release. What this means is that OpenOffice 2 stable will be released any day now.
