Open Office gaining ground
Open Office (a free, open source office software suite) has been challenging Micrsoft Office (a bloated, overpriced office software suite) for a few years now. It just got a boost from google.
From the International Herald Tribune:
Google, the most-used Internet search engine, and Sun Microsystems said Tuesday that they would jointly promote Sun’s word processing and spreadsheet software in a direct challenge to Microsoft’s Office products.
