OpenOffice.org, StarOffice gaining momentum, expert says

Michael S. Mimoso writes

"Solveig Haugland scoffs at those who believe that Microsoft Office will rule forever. "OpenOffice.org and [Sun Microsystems Inc.'s] StarOffice will become as widely used or more so than Microsoft Office is now," she predicted in a recent interview with SearchEnterpriseLinux.com. The two rivals to Microsoft Office will win business users over with their lower cost, ample support and ease of use, she said. Haugland isn't just an open-source enthusiast. She is an OpenOffice.org and StarOffice instructor and author and a SearchEnterpriseLinux.com Ask the Expert advisor. She is also co-author, with Floyd Jones, of three how-to books: OpenOffice.Org 1.0 Resource Kit,StarOffice 5.2 Companion and StarOffice 6.0 Office Suite Companion."
