-Replacing FrameMaker with OOo Writer 
-</H2>
-<P>&quot;I began comparing FrameMaker and Writer when a regular on
-the OpenOffice.org User's list asked what it would take to give
-Writer the power of FrameMaker. When I started, I mentally pictured a
-scale with Microsoft Word on one end and FrameMaker on another, with
-Writer in the middle, but closer to Microsoft Word. As I proceeded, I
-found Writer was a much stronger contender than I had expected. At
-the end of the comparison, I had to conclude that the two products
-compare quite closely, depending on what features are more important
-to a given user.&quot;

-Germans claim Linux lowers costs</H2>
-<P>&quot;The greatest cost saving opportunities that Soreon Research
-found were in the adoption of a variety of office applications on
-work-stations. Over three-years, a 2000-seat organisation would save
-around &euro;525,000 with office applications, &euro;57,000 with
-servers, &euro;32,000 with content management systems and &euro;21,000
-with databases. For a &euro;1,000,000 budget, the use of
-OpenOffice.org instead of Microsoft Office would provide a 20 per
-cent cost advantage.&quot;</P>

-OpenOffice is a workable and flexible alternative to Microsoft Office</H2>
-<P>&quot;All this by way of introduction to my pitch for
-OpenOffice.org, an open-source software suite that at best is a lot
-more program than Works and at worst only a little less functional
-than Microsoft Office.</P>
-<P>OpenOffice.org, which was popularized as Star Office from Sun
-Microsystems, is more than adequate for perhaps 95 percent of users.
-Most interestingly, it is the only free Office-style program that
-runs on both Windows and Linux, as well as the Macintosh, and its
-files are mostly (more on that later) compatible with Microsoft
-Office. You can buy Sun's version, which includes product support,
-for $79.&quot;</P>
-<P>&quot;Problems with Word are usually pretty simple to fix, but
-complex formulas in Excel occasionally generate outright spurious
-results. Setting up a mail list in OO isn't as bonehead simple as it
-is with Works. A fair number of users would like to see an integrated
-e-mail program and personal information manager, a la Outlook.</P>
-<P>But the price is right, and the program is more than adequate for
-casual users. If you're doing anything complicated, evaluate the
-program yourself.&quot;</P>
