It is not too bold to say that OpenOffice.org 2.0 will usher in a new era of functionality, reliability, compatibility and ease of use. The extensive changes and enhancements which are to be included in the upcoming release are all the evidence needed to justify this assertionby: Craig A. Adams March 4 2005 For those who are impatient and unwilling to wait for the final release, today sees the public availability of the first beta version of OpenOffice.org 2.0. This beta is not for the faint of heart, and should not be considered as reliable or be used in a production environment. OpenOffice.org is made available for free download from a multitude of locations, worldwide, and is offered under the LGPL and SISSL Free Software and Open Source Licences. But the scale of the enhancements and improvements made to OpenOffice.org in preparation for this release means that many users will not only consider using the suite for its affordability but also for its functionality.

I know I am anxiously awaiting the final release, if for no other reason than it will have DB functionality. The new user interfaces look much better and easier, too.
