I agree.. OpenOffice all the way. Especially since a lot of my friends use MSOffice and when they send me files I have to be able to open them.
There's also the little fact that it's the most fully featured one

Staroffice

What about a simple Database? StarOffice is by far the best... OpenOffice.org is good, but StarOffice has everything that OpenOffice.org has plus more.....Templates, database, etc.... Don't knock because it's propietary....I used OpenOffice.org because I'm cheap.... but it you're looking for the best office suite, it has to be StarOffice.... Gnome Office is pretty good too.

OpenOffice.org but I rarely use it. Only when people send me MS files or when I have to make a presentation.

thats right, with out the org from the website, it makes it a company and there are rules regrading open software. so the website is part of the open source thingy and the office to be part of the same open source thingy has to be named after the website thingy, ive lost track of what i was saying, ohh yeah, it would cost them to give it away of it wasnt calle open office.org

I can not believe MS asks so much for so little more than what OpeOffice offers. My vote is for OpenOffice.

'Comparitively' is an understatement. SIAG is amazing in how much it does with meager resources. It works well on an ancient Zenith Z-Star 486 laptop as well as on an Athlon. It's also incredibly easy to use. PW (Pathetic Writer, for those who don't know it) can format in HTML, perfect for quick-and-dirty WYSIWYG web pages and tech documents.

I also have, like and use Star Office (fantastic), Open Office (SO minus some bells and whistles) and KOffice but find myself using SIAG -- a lot -- so SIAG gets my one vote.

I actually think that those nice folks at KDE would be well advised to abandon KOffice and instead add a KDE-compatible interface and database to OpenOffice. My only gripe with OOo is that it does not look the part in KDE...
