Adam Tweddell used a KLUG LTSP desktop PC and the KLUG SVGA projector to take us through the introductory details about the OpenOffice.org suite of office productivity apps. Questions were answered as they arose during the presentation.
Adam used Impress slide shows provided by OpenOffice.org to show us how the applications worked. He also demonstrated functions in the applications, walking us through configuration and operations. OpenOffice.org is Open Source free software. The current version is OOo v2.0.2. OOo is a key offering in the proprietary software vs. Linux battle for the desktop.
Data from each component can be shared with the other OOo components. The integration between the applications can be static or dynamic. Literally take a letter and a spreadsheet and make them into a slide. Some of the new features found in OOo applications are wonderfully innovative and unique.
