I’ve been using only the beta2 of the OpenOffice suite for a few weeks now and I haven’t still decided whether it will replace my MS Office Suite or not. It’s all about these small things that makes you realize that the later will not be instantly forgotten (as for example MSIE): 99% compatible with Word (some embedded pics do not look the way you left them when they used to be in a *.doc), graph-ing in Calc isn’t as easy as within Excel, quite longer loading times. I hope all these things will find their way toewards the final release. As for now, I found it better to have them both.
We are still playing catch-up to MS Office. I hope the next release after this does something radically new and focuses on usability…
