I just downloaded the last release of Open Office (v2.4) on both my Windows and Linux PCs. This version has some minor tweaks and fixes from v2.3. I can't wait for the 3.0 version which is scheduled for this summer. This version has many new features related to Web 2.0 and also works with Vista (God forbid) and Office 2007. In the meantime, you can download this file to make Open Office compatible with Office 2007. Check out this document for the full set of features and future direction of this excellent office product.

Open Office 3.0 - Get more documents

For those of you who still think that OO is not ready for prime time, think again. I have been using it at a Microsoft shop for a year and nobody can tell the difference. There have been over 1 million downloads of OO in just over the last 100 days. Version 3.0 will take it to the next level.

    Thanks for the link. By the way, I think some of this docstoc PDF presentation is out of date. IIRC, it's from September. Some of the features listed are already in 2.4 and others won't make it in 3.0.
