    Any chance of an article reminding us what 3.3 brings to the table

    Also does anyone know if they've merged any of the go-oo stuff?

    @Michael: It's the second time you mention it, but what do you mean when you say that Open Office 3.3 is out? On their openoffice.org, they only push 3.2 og RC8 of 3.3 - or am I missing something?

    Open Office and openoffice.org are now two different entities. Basically Open Office is now what Sun's StarOffice once was: a proprietary office suite based on openoffice.org.

    I know it's confusing and I agree that it's a low marketing move on Oracle's side.

    Okay, that explains it - thanks for clearing that up for me! Is there any difference in the two software suites (on features, ?) or is it simply support that comes with Open Office over OpenOffice.org?
