Office for Mac Isn’t an Improvement

Office for Mac Isn’t an Improvement, NYT review.
Wow, that might be the most damning main stream review I've read. I'm glad I'm not a Word/Entourage user, or work on the team who released this.

Being retired for over 20 years now, I don't really need an Office program, but if I do, my choice is the open-source freeware office suite
from:
http://www.openoffice.org/

It does everything you can do with those expensive ones, and it even works with their file types as well as its own Open Document format. It's a good program,and the price is certainly right. It is sponsored by Oracle and formerly by Sun Microsystems - and it works!

Another vote for openoffice.org. Other advantages include availability for different operating systems, and it uses the "traditional" style for its commands. No "ribbon" that I found confusing and hard to work with when I tried it. Also, exports files to .pdf format without the add-in that the other Word program requires. I switched to openoffice.org for all my work about 2 years ago and could not be happier.
