You can also check out StarOffice, from Sun. It's pretty good.

I think StarOffice costs money now...
But still, it's an excelent alternative to MSOffice and is waaaaaay cheaper.

As I understand it, StarOffice is just OpenOffice.org with some enchancments, and yes, it cost money. But well under 100 dollars, which puts MS Office to shame. But I'll stick with OpenOffice.org.

I've been using it for the last few weeks and am extreamly impressed. And it's great compatibility with most all versions of Office is GREAT!

Do any of you know some other good websites about OpenOffice, which contains some more plugins, templates or add-ons for OpenOffice?
