Release Date: April 18, 2003.
OpenOffice is a full-featured office suite that comes as an alternative to the Microsoft Office. It brings alternative solutions for each major tool bundled into Microsoft's very own suite, which means that you can switch to this application even if you are a fan of MS Word, Excel, Power Point or Access.
OpenOffice has them all, obviously under a different name, yet boasting almost the same powerful functions as Microsoft's software package. The installer allows you to set up only the components you need, by simply selecting them, yet this is a reason why it is important to check twice before making your choices.
Using this utility is quite easy after you get used to the menus and the places functions are located. Sure, it might be a bit overwhelming for first-time users, but it's only the way such a complex application may interact with its users.
“Writer” is a part of the suite designed as a direct replacement for Microsoft Word. It comes with spell checking, it allows you to insert tables, pictures, files or graphs into new documents, change formatting, build macros, switch to another language or even install extensions from the same rich interface.
“Calc” is Excel's equivalent and it has everything you need, be it spreadsheet functions, filters, forms, charts and drawings. In addition to that the “Impress” component challenges PowerPoint and relies on a wide assortment of built-in animations and effects to make your presentations more appealing.
