OpenOffice is free and who doesn't love a bargain? As an open-source Office Suites, updates for the software are also free; the same is not always true of Microsoft updates.

OpenOffice is an Open Source alternative to Microsoft Office 2010 that is free to download. One major difference between OpenOffice and the Microsoft version is that the latter does not have any restrictions in terms of features. Everything in the suite is free including the formula editor, presentation creator, and word processor.

A guaranteed compatibility with Microsoft's version

Sophisticated, fast and yet flexible, OpenOffice is fully compatible with file formats on the Microsoft suite of software. Running OpenOffice is quite easy and the selection of any component can be performed fast from the main Windows desktop menu. It is still possible to make a selection individually.

In general, OpenOffice can be used to create files compatible with Word. These files could be opened using Microsoft Word Viewer 2003 among others but with some restrictions. Indeed, computers running versions of Office from 2003 and above will need to have a separate converter downloaded. This converter is essential for these files to be opened.

OpenOffice can be configured so that all files created with the software are saved by default in the Microsoft 2003 format. This default saving can be setup in all OpenOffice components. This is surely a mean for users of the open source software to share their files with Microsoft users. If you need to create documents without having to spend a lot of money for a software, then OpenOffice is likely to be helpful.

It is clear that OpenOffice on its way to catchup to Microsoft.
