            There is an Open-Source Alternative to StarOffice

            There is an Open Source Alternative ( to the StarOffice.

            With the OpenOffice Suite ( you get ALL the source code.

            With StarOffice ( all you get is a binary file, with NO option to tweak the software to your own liking.

            Get the OpenOffice Suite ( now !

            It's a little bloated, but it works!!
            I agree that StarOffice a little bloated, but it has all the functionality that anyone would need, I challange anyone to find an office suite for linux that is free and offers half of what this does. Plus it is a good program for people who are switching from M$ to linux. It is bloated, but if you have a beefy enough machine, it can handle it. Just my $0.02.
