Holy crapamola! Tectonic writes that the up-and-coming OpenOffice.org 2.0 is going to be a doozy. Read the article; you'll be drooling by the end if you use the current version of the office suite. Even if you use MSOffice or other, 2.0 is going to be an excellent time to switch over to open source. And it won't even cost you $300.
If you want to take a sneak peak at the beta version of the release, you can snag it here. Be ready to face a whole slew of bugs in all likelyhood if you do, though. It's beta for a reason.
I'm excited. Again.
