LXer: Apache OpenOffice 4 is here
Published at LXer:

It is also the first Apache OpenOffice version that includes code and features merged from IBMís Symphony. So this is not just a cleanup of the old OpenOffice code that you used to use before LibreOffice was forked from it. Itís much more than that.

Apache OpenOffice 3 and 4 Text Document spell checker is ideal. After using Windows Office Word 97 for many years, with Word 97 spell checker corrections are limited to mostly five letter words, it is good to see a spell checker that provides many words with eight and more letter options. I don't need all the fancy options and "Save As" extensions provided by updated versions of Windows Office. Would like to see an auto correct option in Apache OpenOffice. I'd Rather have the drop down menu black font with white background similar to Word 97 than Windows Office Word 2010 menu display seen on my Windows 7 OS Laptop.
