I have written several times about OpenOffice.org, the free replacement for the $400+ Microsoft Office suite of programs (Word, Excel, PowerPoint and more). I am very impressed with OpenOffice.org and am now using it more often than I use the Microsoft products. This article is being written in OpenOffice.org's word processor program. You can read my review of OpenOffice.org version 1.1, written two years ago here.
Now the prestigious PC Magazine has reviewed the beta version of OpenOffice.org 2.0. They like it so much that they awarded it four stars (out of a maximum of five) in their rating system. That's high praise indeed.
