Timeshare Sales and Marketing software company Syntax International today announced support for the free Office Productivity suite OpenOffice.org
OpenOffice.org is a free productivity suite compatible with all major office suites including Microsoft Office and is available for download from www.openoffice.org The product is a multi-platform office productivity suite. It includes the key desktop applications, such as a word processor, spreadsheet, presentation manager, and drawing program, with a user interface and feature set similar to other office suites. Sophisticated and flexible, OpenOffice.org also works transparently with a variety of file formats, including those of Microsoft Office.
Available in 25 languages with more being constantly added by the community. OpenOffice.org runs stably and natively on Solaris, Linux (including PPC Linux), and Windows. Additional ports, such as for FreeBSD, IRIX, and Mac OS X, are in various stages of completion.
