Open Office 3.2 ships and logs 300,000,000 downloads

The Community this morning announced the release of the latest version of its personal productivity suite, and announced that the software has been downloaded 300 million times in total since its public debut in April 2002.

Open Office is a free, open-source alternative to Microsoft’s Office desktop software suite, offering basic components of productivity tools such as a word processor, spreadsheet, presentation, graphics, formula and database capabilities. In my experience, it is completely compatible with the Microsoft suite, as well.

Oracle, OpenOffice’s main sponsor after its recent acquisition of Sun Microsystems, and other distributors, offers OpenOffice enterprise support with longer lifecycles.

You can download the latest version of OpenOffice here.
