XML News from Wednesday, June 11, 2008

The OpenOffice Project has released OpenOffice 2.4.1, an open source office suite for Linux, Solaris, and Windows that saves all its files as zipped XML. 2.4.1 is a bug fix release.

I deleted Microsoft Office from my MacBook a couple of weeks ago, because of severe bugs (startup took forever). I haven't had any trouble living without it, but then I'm no longer a fulltime writer. For now I'm just using Google Docs as my replacement. Openoffice is still too ugly to tolerate.
