Well some people don't like fat people for President. Open office is very fat in fact it's so 10 times fatter than MS Office and by fat I mean takes up more resources.

I downloaded OpenOffice 2.0 just yesterday. Been working on it since last night. I must say, I am VERY impressed. Before this, I've been using StarOffice 1.7 - which was based on OpenOffice 1.0. But, OpenOffice 2.0 is better than the StarOffice I was using.

I use MS Word in campus, so I know what it has. And for "my purposes", the new OO 2.0 has everything from MS Word that I need. INCLUDING the Format Painter!!
