If you evaluated OpenOffice.org 1.1.x and felt it wasn’t ready just yet, give this new version a try. They improvements are remarkable. This is an office suite suitable for 95% of home and office workers. (I have used OpenOffice exclusively for over a year.)
If you offer custom applications to your clients that integrate or automate MS Office or WordPerfect, take a look at what would be involved in bringing in OpenOffice.org as another alternative. Your clients can obtain OO.o for free, and your application can offer many powerful new features.
