Damn right.
Been with them since the good old staroffice.
That sucks now, but openoffice has gotten better and better. Some compatability problems with it when taking things into school.

very wee, just a small booklet affair, about the size of one of those leaflet things, but very elongated and about 2cm thick. to be precise.

Openoffice is evil... it's slow and I don't trust it... but it's free... I got microsoft office for the mac (the student edition) I don't even think there was a manual, or if there was I call it something else...

It does take more memory than Microsoft, as the whole office setup is in a single program, making importing things into other formats easy.

It does an evil thing though - when you have saved a spreadsheet as openoffice and then get excel so you want to transfer all the spreadsheets into excel when you go to save as in openoffice to change it from an openoffice file into an excel one when you quit it warns you that some data might be lost, that's evil...

It normaly works fine for me. If it does lose anthing its normaly fonts or formating.
