OpenOffice.org can be installed without Java; the installation program advises that some functionality may not be present, but I don't know what functionality they're talking about. I used always to install it without Java and didn't have Java on my computer even, and OpenOffice.org ran just fine.
OpenOffice.org emerges as the clear winner in this poll....
From nowhere, the open source community has worked so hard to challenge MS Office...and i am pleased to find a free product that does not crash every now and then...even on windows too!.....sure there will be problems too as openoffice is a new application, but the software is excellent..i dont mind even if it is slow...we've implemented it on around 150 computers at our main office and on 50 computers across 24 branch offices!
Originally posted by davecs For all its annoyances (ugly as sin, for one) there's no getting away from Open Office as the best Office suite for Linux, Mac and Windows!
World domination to follow!
They won't be making a dent in the M$ Office market until they (OpenOffice.org) address performance issues. As far as the GUI goes, much of OpenOffice.org's GUI is actually more intutive than that of M$ office.
