|| ||OpenOffice.org 3.0 now in a browser with Ulteo!|
|| ||Tue, 14 Oct 2008 13:00:46 +0200|
The latest and full featured version of OpenOffice.org 3.0 is now
available through Ulteo.com using a web browser with a single click of
a mouse. No download or installation process of the productivity suite
is required. This new service by Ulteo offers many benefits for users
of the productivity suite, and is compatible with any operating system
that can run Firefox 2.0+ or Internet Explorer 6.0+.
*Instant trial & collaboration*
Making OpenOffice.org 3.0 available through a browser should also
help accelerate its adoption by an even broader user base. Users can
introduce OpenOffice.org 3.0 to others via email, invite them to
discover OpenOffice.org with just one click, and can give a personal
tour of the program in realtime. Invitations are sent via email and
allow access in either read only or full edit mode, simply by clicking
on a link in the email.
Using Ulteo's service, users can exploit features of OpenOffice.org
which may be missing from their current desktop software. For example,
OpenOffice.org can read and write Microsoft Office files, and generate
.pdf format files without requiring any additional software.
OpenOffice.org also reads and writes documents in OpenDocument Format,
the ISO-approved standard for office documents, which can only be read
in Microsoft Office after installing a plug-in.
*This new service is provided by Ulteo*
Ulteo powers the online version of OpenOffice.org 3.0:
Ulteo Oline Services were officially launched in December 2007. Since
that release, more than 65,000 users worldwide have already opened an
Ulteo user account.
Ulteo will release the first installable version of their online
software delivery and management solution as a full Open Source
plateform on early November. As a result, corporations can easily
manage and offer their choice of applications to corporate users while
ensuring a low total cost of ownership (TCO).
Ulteo is a new Open Source project that delivers software
applications to web browsers. Ulteo aims at simplifying the way system
administrators and people use computers. Ulteo consists of a range of
innovative offline and online products, including Ulteo-OpenOffice.org
online and the Ulteo Online Desktop.
