Office Open source: OpenOffice 3.0

Office Open source: OpenOffice 3.0 - If we follow the development of IT news, telas best product release in 2008, the OpenOffice 3.0. OpenOffice may be the only open source applications with the Microsoft Office equivalent (in terms of completeness and capabilities). In this version there are many improvements, additional facilities and many other special features.

One new feature is being able to open the OpenOffice file format of Microsoft Office 2007 or 2008 (. Docx,. Xlsx,. Pptx, etc.), So not a problem for those who already have the documents in that format. With plugins "Sun PDF Import Extension" we can open a PDF file and edit its contents. Is that all? Certainly not a lot of other interesting features.
