Switching to OpenOffice.org: Step 1
The first step, of course, is to get the software. Here are some options:
- Download it from http://www.openoffice.org
- You can download Novell’s version of OpenOffice.org. Novell is working on macro conversion code, so that’s one reason to try it. http://download.novell.com/index.jsp
- Get a CD from one of the providers listed here http://distribution.openoffice.org/cdrom/index.html#cdrom
- Or if you’re going to be getting a Linux computer, it’s going to be installed already.
Then install OpenOffice.org. Just double-click the downloaded file, or follow the instructions for installing it for your operating system here. http://download.openoffice.org/common/instructions.html
