TechBookReport on 'Point & Click OpenOffice.org'
TBR writes "This colourful, friendly and decidedly non-technical book is pitched at the reader making that big switch from Microsoft Office to OpenOffice.org 2.0. To that end, it's as more about making the reader comfortable with the new office suite than it is about providing detailed tutorials for power users. The book covers all of the main components of OpenOffice.org (OOo), starting with Writer (for word processing), to Impress (for presentations), Calc (for spreadsheets) and Base (for databases). In addition, just to round out the open source message, the book also covers a replacement for Internet Explorer in the form of Mozilla Firefox and a replacement for Outlook/Outlook Express by way of Mozilla Thunderbird."
