Office software shootout: OpenOffice.org Writer vs. Microsoft Word, round three

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 76.237.33.190] on September 11, 2007 10:52 PM
I just last week started using MS Office 2007 for some work. Personally, I'm extremely happy with the ribbons. I found it generally much easier to find commands I wanted than with menus in either MS or Open Office (I confess I'm not a heavy user of either, so I don't have lots of existing work habits disrupted by this change). Since I like these things, I naturally tend to think this is a great strategic move by Microsoft, since I suspect it will serve them well in the long run. Kudos to the managers and engineers who had the guts and vision to make such a big change. And my sympathies with the scads of users who must go through the transition to learning these.
