SUNY New Paltz Suggests OpenOffice

SUNY New Paltz’ web page recommending computer purchases for students suggests they consider instead of Microsoft Office. The salient paragraph can be found at the bottom of the page, reading, “Students do not need to have Microsoft Office on their computers, though they will have to save their documents into Microsoft Word format. Nearly all word processing programs can save as RTF, which is compatible with Microsoft Word. Instead of buying an expensive office suite, consider using OpenOffice. It is free and can be downloaded from”

This is the second SUNY school I have discovered using OpenOffice. The faculty at SUNY Buffalo made a strong endorsement of OpenOffice over two years ago, which I cataloged here. Having come across these two by chance, I can only imagine there are many others following the same path.
