Download OpenOffice.org 3.3.0 for Windows from Downsoft.
OpenOffice.org is an open-source software application suite available, it is distributed as free software and written using its own GUI toolkit. It supports the ISO/IEC standard OpenDocument Format (ODF) for data interchange as its default file format, as well as Microsoft Office formats among others. As of November 2009[update], OpenOffice supports over 110 languages.
OpenOffice.org brings along some changes in the graphical user interface. After the acquisition of Sun Microsystems by Oracle all Sun Logos were replaced by Oracle Logos. Furthermore the OpenOffice.org logo was refreshed for the release. OpenOffice.org Calc and Writer both have a reduced “cold start” time by 46%, it also includes support for PostScript-based OpenType fonts.
During the last 10 years OpenOffice.org has evolved to a quite large project in the FLOSS world and a successful product in the office productivity suite market. Together with our product the OpenOffice.org brand spread over the world. This brand has a tradition of quality and it remains faithful to its origins and it has now a refreshed appearance.
The office suite is free to download, use, and distribute and has a user interface and feature set similar to other office suites. Sophisticated and flexible, OpenOffice.org also works transparently with a variety of file formats, including those of Microsoft Office, and the vendor-neutral OpenDocument standard from OASIS.
OpenOffice.org features a word processor(WRITER),a multimedia presentation program (IMPRESS), a mathematical function creator (MATH), a Vector Drawing Tool (DRAW), a spreadsheet (CALC), and an easy-to-use database manager with a fully integrated database database (BASE).
