MS Office (Word, Excel, etc) for your MS Windows Mobile or MS Windows Tablet
The Novell edition of OpenOffice.org includes a word processor, presentation and spreadsheet applications, an HTML editor, and a drawing tool. It's all you need to create, process, review and revise the documents required in daily business.
This version of OpenOffice.org has extensive file-format compatibility with Microsoft Office, allowing users to better share files between platforms. SUSE® Linux Enterprise Desktop includes fonts that are geometrically compatible with Microsoft fonts to provide better format fidelity when reading native Microsoft Office files. OpenOffice.org also exports documents in Adobe portable document format (PDF) with no additional software required.
While not an exact feature-for-feature match to Microsoft Office, OpenOffice.org provides the majority of functionality your users are used to in their daily business. The user interface requires little retraining for current Windows and Microsoft Office users and the file-import and export tools ensure that users never have to worry about file formats when collaborating with Microsoft Office users.
IBM is announcing the desktop software, called I.B.M. Lotus Symphony, the programs will be available as free downloads from the I.B.M. Web site.
Its offerings are versions of open-source software developed in a consortium called OpenOffice.org. The original code traces its origins to a German company, Star Division, which Sun Microsystems bought in 1999. Sun later made the desktop software, now called StarOffice, an open-source project, in which work and code are freely shared.
I.B.M.’s engineers have been working with OpenOffice technology for some time. But last week, I.B.M. declared that it was formally joining the open-source group, had dedicated 35 full-time programmers to the project and would contribute code to the initiative.
