did kind of a research project into this, and found little overall difference. If anything, they liked OO 3.0 better than MS Office 2003.
i have just downloaded the OpenOffice.org 3 office applications package. it seems quite nice without too much difference from the usual MS Office layout and other features.
however, since i do not know a lot about these packages, i was wondering if anyone could shed some light on how these two stack up against each other?
what are the big pluses and minuses of OpenOffice.org 3 as compared to MS Office 2003?
