"OpenOffice.org 1.1 is almost ready for you, and the latest release candidate (RC4) looks usable enough that adventurous souls may be comfortable using it today"
What a load of crap. This is such an obvious over exageration that I can only conclude that our journalist has a hidden agenda.
I've been using OpenOffice.org 1.1 heavily since the -rc2 series and I haven't had a single crash/hang/etc. It loads and saves M$.doc files without a glitch (in my experience), and the export-as-pdf feature impresses the pants of people.
StarOffice is for suckers, and that's okay because the world is full of them. I think Suns business plan is great, but "Roblimo", don't try selling imitation Free Software to the Free Software community.
(now, running Debian "testing" is really for the adventurous. GNOME 1.4, are you sure it's stable?)
