OpenOffice.org 2.0 Launched

Posted by David Hunter at 11:46 AM ET.

Nate Mook at BetaNews:

After over two years in development, the final version of OpenOffice.org 2.0 has been made available for download. The productivity suite offers a word processor, spreadsheet, presentation builder and a database — all for free and available in 36 languages for Windows and Unix based platforms.

Perhaps the most notable addition in OpenOffice.org 2.0 is support for the OASIS OpenDocument format, which could prove to be the first true rival to Microsoft’s proprietary Office formats. OpenDocument is a completely open standard that has been chosen for use by several countries and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

More feature details by following the link as well as downloads of the Windows, Linux, MacOS and FreeBSD versions hosted by BetaNews. You’ll need them because right now www.openoffice.org seems to be hammered by downloaders.
