experiences of opening and using business MS word, excel and ppt files into open office

I’ve been running openoffice on my laptop now for seeveral weeks, and have to say its really good.

There are a few new things to learn, numbering formats in Writer are slightly different to Word, and some XLS charts dont import well into Chart in open office and need redesigning.

I dont agree with some that say openoffice is slow.  Its not, certainly on my laptop with normal business files.

Overall, I’m pleased with the move to openoffice.org software – no loss of functionality, and its even a little quicker too!

Roll on the next migration stage…
