2.0.3 released

By Justin Mann on July 3, 2006, 11:04 AM
Fans of the increasingly-popular Office suite will be happy to learn that the next version has been released. Focusing primarily on better integration with other programs, OpenOffice 2.0.3 brings a host of changes. They include things such as improved compatibility with MS Office, better support for OS X, improved PDF functionality, better toolbar functionality and more. There were a few security issues fixed as well. The full release notes are available if you are interested. A 2.0.2 to 2.0.3 patch is not available yet, though the crew has mentioned that one is in the works. As one of the best free Office suites available, OpenOffice has gained a lot of popularity in the past few years, with the increased audience for alternative software. It's available for download freely, and is 93 to 122mb in size.

Why not just get the open beta of office 2007?

On top of that, not everyone wants to use Office. Since I generate everything in ODT and require the ability to easily work on a document under multiple operating systems, Microsoft Office isn't a choice.

I've dumped MS Office on my 2 home PCs now for OpenOffice. Whatever about corporate users, I don't think most home users will notice much difference once they get used to the UI. Of course, I do hope they eventually update/modernise the UI.
