Mac Users Get Ready For OpenOffice 3.0

leave a comment »


Mac users can expect the next round of OpenOffice (OpenOffice.org is an open source productivity suite similar to MS Office) software at the end of September 2008.

Microsoft Office’s competitor was originally due for release in mid-September at the OpenOffice.org Annual Conference in Lyon, but was delayed following “issues with non-English transcripts”.

Version 3.0 will be the first to accommodate Mac users without requiring them to install the X11 Window System, an interface that allows Unix-based applications to work on Macs which has previously been used.

It is expected the the new OpenOffice will be modernized in looks to compete with the successful MS Office 2008 for Mac released late last year.
