Question New Office Suite?


Searching around downloads.com on their Linux section and i stumbled across this...

SOT Office 2002
http://download.com.com/3000-2031-10...l?tag=lst-0-13

Description
From the developer: "SOT Office 2002 is a free productivity suite for Windows and Linux. A full-featured, high-quality software suite, SOT Office is fully compatible with other major office applications. You can open and save .doc, .xls and all your usual file formats with SOT Office, so sharing documents with friends and colleagues is a breeze. With a familiar intuitive interface, SOT Office 2002 is simple to use, whatever your skill level. For those new to office software, a printable user guide is included to help get you started."

Just want to ask, has anoyone tried this ?

Ok, downloaded both the Linux and Windows versions. Looks and works just like Open Office. Just different packaging.

Says on their website they have some different features that OO does not. Didn't see anything that different for me. But, maybe something important to someone else.

Tried opening a Word document that I test with that has a massive table of contents and links in the .doc but had the same result as OO. The Table of Contents does not work.

For me, looks like it is still about 95% compatible when with Microsoft Office. (IMHO)

You gotta love Open Office. No need for Microsoft Office.
