5.5. Opening or Creating Documents with OpenOffice.org

The office suite OpenOffice.org offers a complete set of office tools including a word processor, spreadsheet, presentation, vector drawing, and database components. As OpenOffice.org is available for a number of operating systems, you can use the same data across different computing platforms. You can also open and edit files in Microsoft Office formats then save them back to this format, if needed.

To start OpenOffice.org, press Alt-F2 and enter OOo or click the Office icon on the desktop.

For a more in-depth introduction to OpenOffice.org, see Chapter 1, The OpenOffice.org Office Suite (↑Applications) or view the help in an OpenOffice.org program.
