OpenOffice.org 3.0 Alpha Screenshots

Thanks to a recent comment on an earlier post here, and a mention on Erwin Tenhumberg’s blog, I’ve found OOo Ninja’s post of screenshots from OpenOffice.org 3.0 Alpha.

Some great features are due to arrive in this release toward the end of the year. They include an upgraded notes feature (with display in the margin), side-by-side page view options, an improved user interface theme for Calc, native table support in Impress, and the native Mac version!

Erwin also mentions in his blog the download rate of OOo has reached 1 million per week, an astronomical number that even still does not represent the total number of users, since many will get their copy from other repositories, Linux distributions, CDs, or pre-installed with a new computer.

    We want to use this software in place of MS Office in a Terminal Services environment. I am downloadng it now, and we will see if it will work for us.

    OpenOffice should work quite well in your environment. Let me know if you’d like assistance or even further research into others who have used it with Terminal Services. I’m sure I’ve heard of some cases, but don’t remember the details at this moment.
