+## Why should I use Apache OpenOffice?
+
+![Why Apache OpenOffice](/images/AOO_logos/orb.jpg) # {.rfloatimg}
+
+is the leading **open-source** **office software suite** for **word processing**, **spreadsheets**,
**presentations**, **graphics**, **databases** and more. It is available in **many languages**
and works on all **common computers**. It stores all your data in an **international open
standard format** and can also read and write files from other common office software packages.
It can be downloaded and used completely **free of charge** for **any purpose**.
+
+ - [Great software](why_great.html)
+   </br></br>
+   Apache OpenOffice is the result of over twenty years' software engineering. Designed from
the start as a single piece of software, it has a consistency other products cannot match.
A completely open development process means that anyone can report bugs, request new features,
or enhance the software. The result: Apache OpenOffice does everything you want your office
software to do, the way you want it to.
+
+ - [Easy to use](why_easy.html)
+   </br></br>
+   Apache OpenOffice is easy to learn, and if you're already using another office software
package, you'll take to OpenOffice straight away. Our world-wide native-language community
means that OpenOffice is probably available and supported in your own language. And if you
already have files from another office package - OpenOffice will probably read them with no
difficulty.
+
+ - [and it's free](why_free.html)
+   </br></br>
+   Best of all, Apache OpenOffice can be downloaded and used entirely free of any licence
fees. Apache OpenOffice is released under the Apache 2.0 Licence. This means you may use it
for any purpose - domestic, commercial, educational, public administration. You may install
it on as many computers as you like. You may make copies and give them away to family, friends,
students, employees - anyone you like.

+![Why Apache OpenOffice: Easy-to-use](/why/images/why_easy.png) # {.rfloatimg}
+
+Easy to choose, easy to install, easy to learn - Apache OpenOffice is the easy choice for
an office software suite. OpenOffice is suitable for complete beginners, but if you have used
any other office software, that's ok too. OpenOffice will make full use of what you already
know - through familiar screens and menus - and also what you have - by reading existing files
with no retyping.
+
+  - **Use it immediately**
+
+    For people used to other office software, Apache OpenOffice is a pleasant surprise. It's
so straightforward! Studies have proved it is easier (and cheaper) to move to OpenOffice from
Microsoft Office than it is to upgrade to Microsoft's latest Office 2007. Because OpenOffice
is one piece of software, everything works consistently between applications. Even the help
system is the same. You don't even have to know which application was used to create a document
- OpenOffice will use the correct one. You only need to do a single download from the Internet
(or install from one CD) and you've got your office suite
+
+  - **No need to retype**
+
+    We understand that many people already have documents which they have created using other
common office software packages. Apache OpenOffice can read these files with a very high degree
of accuracy, making migration to OpenOffice very straightforward. In fact, we have reports
where OpenOffice has been able to read files which the original software package had said
were corrupted and unusable. If your friends or colleagues use different software, you can
still swap files with them - but better still, give them a free copy of Apache OpenOffice!
+
+  - **Part of a community**
+
+    When you're starting something new, it's great to know tens of millions of people have
been there before you. Apache OpenOffice is developed, translated, supported, and promoted
by an international community of tens of thousands of enthusiasts. If you have ever waited
for ages for paid-for support from a commercial software provider, community support from
enthusiastic and knowledgeable volunteers may come as a surprise. You may even find yourself
talking to people who have developed or translated the software you are using. Welcome to
the community!

+![Why Apache OpenOffice: Education](/why/images/why_edu.png) # {.rfloatimg}
+
+Education establishments of all levels (primary, secondary, college, university...) find
Apache OpenOffice meets the needs of both teachers and students. The **flexible word processor**,
**powerful spreadsheet**, **dynamic graphics**, **database access** and more meet all requirements
for an office software package.
+
+With an **open-source licence**, OpenOffice can be freely used and distributed with no licence
worries.
+
+  - **For pupils and students**
+
+    Apache OpenOffice forms an ideal teaching platform for core computer literacy skills,
without tying students to commercial products. The free software licence means students can
be given copies of software to use at home - perfectly legally - a useful 'added value'. For
IT students, OpenOffice's component based software is also an ideal platform for developing
IT skills and understanding real-life software engineering.
+
+  - **For teachers and academics**
+
+    Apache OpenOffice is also an ideal platform for creating teaching materials and managing
administrative tasks. For example, the *Writer* word processor is easy to use for simple memos,
but also powerful enough to cope with complex dissertations. For IT staff, the open-source
software licence means an end to licence compliance worries and the threat of software audits.
OpenOffice is developed, translated, and supported by an international community linked by
the internet, opening exciting possibilities for school projects. 
+
+  - **Open for all**
+
+    Apache OpenOffice is a leading international force in the movement for digital inclusion
- making software of the highest quality available to all, regardless of income. OpenOffice
is available in a wide variety of languages, and we actively encourage local teams to produce
versions for local languages. We develop software on an open-source process - the computing
equivalent of peer-reviewed publishing - creating software of the highest quality.

+![Why Apache OpenOffice: Free/Open-Source Software](/why/images/why_foss.png) # {.rfloatimg}
+
+(F/OSS) proponents are turning to Apache OpenOffice both as end-users and as contributors.
With its **flexible word processor**, **powerful spreadsheet**, **dynamic graphics**, **database
access** and more, OpenOffice is the office suite of choice of millions of users.
+
+OpenOffice is released under the OSI approved Apache License terms, with over 750 contributors
and an international community approaching 400,000 individuals.
+
+  - **Software for all**
+
+    Apache OpenOffice is the must-have desktop application that tens of millions of people
are using - an open-source tool that your family, friends, and neighbours will appreciate.
With its free software licence and active international community, OpenOffice is a key player
in the drive to eradicate digital exclusion and preserve minority languages threatened by
being on the wrong side of the digital divide. For tens of thousands of community members,
this makes the OpenOffice community their volunteering opportunity of choice.
+
+  - **Open for development**
+
+    Apache OpenOffice is a mature software product, representing over twenty years' continuous
development. It is available across multiple operating systems. Understanding and contributing
to the core development requires serious commitment and software engineering skills - not
for the faint hearted. However, like all successful open-source projects, OpenOffice has an
active developer community, keen to help new arrivals. Alternatively, try writing extensions,
or using OpenOffice's UNO based components in other applications.
+
+  - **Open world**
+
+    If you are using Apache OpenOffice, you will appreciate the work that has gone into providing
this software for you to use for free. Help us to ensure future users can continue to use
it for free. The OpenOffice community invites contributors: *Whatever you do best, do it for
OpenOffice*. As well as developers, the Community welcomes translators, artists, technical
authors, testers, people offering user support, sales and marketing people, lobbyists, donors,
... the list is long. The Community operates internationally in all time zones, linked by
the internet. Talk to us today.

+![Why Apache OpenOffice: Free software](/why/images/why_free.png) # {.rfloatimg}
+
+Apache OpenOffice is free software. That means you are free to download it, free to install
it on as many PCs as you like, free to pass copies to as many people as you like. You may
use OpenOffice for any purpose without restriction: private, educational, public administration,
commercial... Free, really free.
+
+  - **Free of charge**
+
+    It's hard to believe that high quality, easy to use software like Apache OpenOffice can
really be free. But thanks to contributions of time and money, from individuals and companies
(large and small), OpenOffice is free for you to use today. Furthermore, the open-source licence
used by OpenOffice means this freedom can never be taken away. The OpenOffice community are
delighted if you find our software of use. Please help us by telling people about Apache OpenOffice,
and if you can, pass them on a copy. More people use OpenOffice as a result of personal recommendation
than any other route.
+
+  - **Freedom from worry**
+
+    However, a free software licence means much more than a one-off cost saving. It means
you never need worry again whether your software is legal, or whether it will expire some
day. For people responsible for a number of computers - from just a few in a small business,
hundreds in a school, thousands in a corporation - this is a huge weight off the mind. No
need for software audits, for keeping invoices for years, no worry about ending up in court
because you misread some small print in a licence agreement.
+
+  - **We value your freedom**
+
+    As part of a community dedicated to free software, we also value your freedom of choice.
Apache OpenOffice will read and write files which can be used in other common office software.
It was the first software in the world to fully support the ISO standard for office file formats
which is being adopted by a growing number of software vendors. If you want to use other software,
we want you to be free to do so. If you want to change your PC from Microsoft Windows to Apple
Mac to Linux, we want you to be free to do so. If you like this approach, feel free to join
the Apache OpenOffice community.

+![Why Apache OpenOffice: Public administrations](/why/images/why_gov.png) # {.rfloatimg}
+
+Public administrations and people working at **all levels of government** (local / federal
/ regional / national etc) find Apache OpenOffice is their ideal software solution. The combination
of a **flexible word processor**, a **powerful spreadsheet**, **dynamic graphics**, **database
access** and more meets all the everyday needs of a typical busy office worker.
+
+Already available in a **wide range of languages**, OpenOffice can be freely translated by
local teams.
+
+  - **Best value**
+
+    Using Apache OpenOffice demonstrates your commitment to deliver best value services.
It is not owned by any commercial organisation. Its open source licence means there are no
licence fees to pay, no expensive annual audits, and no worries about non-compliance with
onerous and obscure licencing conditions. You may also distribute the software free to your
employees, through the schools system, or any other channel of your choice.
+
+  - **Data is safe**
+
+    Freedom of Information Acts require that the documents you create today will be accessible
years in the future. Apache OpenOffice is the first software in the world to use ISO approved
file formats as its default. It also has the ability to create PDF files if you need to publish
information in a standard 'read only' format. If you already have (possibly unlicenced) office
software, Apache OpenOffice should be able to read your old files.
+
+  - ** Open for all**
+
+    There are no secrets in Apache OpenOffice - our open-source policy means anyone can inspect
the code or even help us develop the software. We actively encourage local teams to produce
versions for minority languages. OpenOffice is a leading international force in the movement
for digital inclusion - making software of the highest quality available to all, regardless
of income.

+![Why Apache OpenOffice: Great Software](/why/images/why_great.png) # {.rfloatimg}
+
+Great Software requires great people. Apache OpenOffice is the result of over twenty years'
continuous high quality software engineering. Designed from the start as a **single piece
of software**, Apache OpenOffice has a consistency and a quality that is world class. Its
**open-source** development model means there are no secrets.
+
+  - **Better by design**
+
+    Developed over twenty years, Apache OpenOffice is a mature, reliable, product. OpenOffice
was designed from the start as a single piece of software - not bolted together from separate
software packages. This makes it very consistent and easy to use - what you learn in one application
is immediately usable in another. The context-sensitive help works across all applications,
unobtrusively providing the precise help you need. You can even open any type of document
from any application - OpenOffice is really one piece of software. It also runs on all major
computing platforms - Microsoft Windows, GNU/Linux, Sun Solaris, Apple Mac - isn't that great!
+
+  - **Better for you**
+
+    Apache OpenOffice contains all the office software you need, in one single package. You
don't have to worry which version to install: one installation program provides everything.
The installation also includes features which some expensive rivals do not - for example,
the ability to create .pdf files when you want to guarantee what the recipient sees on their
computer. There is also a growing range of extensions: additional features that any developer
can provide. The Apache OpenOffice project releases software several times a year so you can
take advantage of new features as quickly as possible. 
+
+  - **Honest software**
+
+    Apache OpenOffice is developed using an open-software, "no secrets" approach. Anyone
can look at the programs and suggest improvements, or fix bugs. Anyone can report problems
or request enhancements, and anyone can see the response from other users or developers. The
status of current and future releases is displayed on a public wiki, so you can decide if
and when you want to upgrade to take advantage of new features. Anyone used to commercial
software and its hyping and marketing speak will find Apache OpenOffice refreshingly different.
Enjoy the benefits of open-source!

+![Why Apache OpenOffice: Not for Profit](/why/images/why_nfp.png) # {.rfloatimg}
+
+(NFP) organisations of all sizes are turning to Apache OpenOffice - software that meets their
needs and shares their values. The **flexible word processor**, **powerful spreadsheet**,
**dynamic graphics**, **database access** and more meet all the requirements for an office
software package.
+
+OpenOffice offers a high degree of compatibility with commercial office software, but with
none of the costs or licence worries.
+
+  - **Software for all**
+
+    More than ever, NFPs need to be able to compete for attention in a crowded marketplace.
With Apache OpenOffice, NFPs have access to essential office software which is every bit as
good as the expensive commercial tools used by those for whom money is no object. Developed
over twenty years, OpenOffice is a mature, stable, product, guaranteeing trouble-free usage.
OpenOffice is a leading international force in the movement for digital inclusion - making
software of the highest quality available to all, regardless of income. Join in OpenOffice's
international community to exchange ideas, look for inspiration, or just ask for help.
+
+  - **Better but compatible**
+
+    Apache OpenOffice prides itself on its compatibility with other office software. NFPs
who rely on voluntary workers appreciate the fact that people who have any office software
experience are immediately at home with OpenOffice. OpenOffice also understands that no organisation
is an island, which is why it can exchange files with other office software. It also allows
you to create PDF files for those all-important times when you want to retain control of documents
after they leave your office. It is also the first software in the world to store your precious
information in an ISO approved format - the best guarantee for the future.
+
+  - **Open world**
+
+    Amazingly, Apache OpenOffice comes without any license fees, or any worrying small print.
You can install it on as many computers as you like, use it for any purpose, and even give
copies away for employees, supporters, etc. to use at home. Already available in a wide variety
of languages, OpenOffice actively encourages local teams to provide more translations. For
NFPs - charities, voluntary sector organisations, etc - OpenOffice is simply the easiest and
cheapest way of providing the essential software tools needed for an effective operation.

+![Why Apache OpenOffice: IT business](/why/images/why_oem.png) # {.rfloatimg}
+
+Build your business around Apache OpenOffice. If you're in the IT business, OpenOffice can
mean good business for you. The **flexible word processor**, **powerful spreadsheet**, **dynamic
graphics**, **database access** and more meet all the requirements for an office software
package.
+
+Use OpenOffice to add value for your clients, free of licence costs and onerous licencing
conditions.
+
+  - **Unbeatable value add**
+
+    Although it's the big name software companies that capture the headlines, shipping the
box is only a small part of the equation. For the majority of users, it's other people who
provide the value add: the people running training courses, writing user guides, providing
support, integrating systems, providing niche-market add-ons... For all of these businesses,
Apache OpenOffice provides an unbeatable value proposition. No longer do you have to spend
a large chunk of your client's budget on software licences. With OpenOffice, you can offer
office software of the highest quality at no cost.
+
+  - **Open for adoption**
+
+    For developers and systems integrators, Apache OpenOffice is as open as its name implies.
Starting at the file level, it is the first software package in the world to fully support
ISO/IEC 26300 OpenDocument file format (ODF). As more companies adopt the standard, exchanging
data between office software will become as easy as saving and opening a file - a system integrator's
dream. For developers, Apache OpenOffice offers a range of options, from extensions - in a
variety of programming languages - through to use of the full OpenOffice component based architecture.
+
+  - **Open for business**
+
+    Apache OpenOffice prides itself on its compatibility with other office software, both
in the way it works and in the files it uses. So offering OpenOffice doesn't close off options
for your clients - in fact, it opens up new opportunities for them. Amazingly, OpenOffice
comes without any license fees, or any worrying small print. You can pre-install it on computers,
ship it on CDs, include it in books, put it on the cover of magazines... and, you don't need
to say *We recommend Apache OpenOffice* on all your advertising.

+![Why Apache OpenOffice: Enterprises](/why/images/why_sme.png) # {.rfloatimg}
+
+Enterprises from corner-shops to corporate giants are turning to Apache OpenOffice to power
their businesses. The **flexible word processor**, **powerful spreadsheet**, **dynamic graphics**,
**database access** and more meet all the requirements for an office software package.
+
+OpenOffice offers a high degree of compatibility with commercial office software, but with
none of the costs or licence worries.
+
+  - **The no-hassle answer**
+
+    For small businesses, IT is a hassle and an expense. Apache OpenOffice is simply the
easiest and cheapest way of providing the essential software tools required to support a growing
business. Developed over twenty years, OpenOffice is a mature, stable, product, guaranteeing
trouble-free usage. Behind the scenes, it stores all your valuable data in a format approved
by the International Organization for Standardization - the first software package in the
world to meet this exacting standard. As more companies adopt the standard, exchanging data
between office software, accounting software, planning software - any software - will become
as easy as saving and opening a file. No transcription errors, no typing the same information
twice - no hassle computing.
+
+  - **Better but compatible**
+
+    Apache OpenOffice prides itself on its compatibility with other office software. Companies
moving to OpenOffice simply take their existing files with them. In fact, changing to OpenOffice
may be a simpler process than having to upgrade because your commercial software vendor has
brought out a new version. OpenOffice also understands that no business is an island, which
is why it can exchange files with other office software - for example, the one your accountants
use. It also allows you to create PDF files for those all-important times when you want to
retain control of documents after they leave your office.
+
+  - **Open for business**
+
+    Amazingly, Apache OpenOffice comes without any license fees, or any worrying small print.
You can install it on as many computers as you like, use it for any purpose, and even give
copies away for employees to use at home. No more threats of heavy-handed software audits
disturbing your business. You don't even have to worry about what to install - OpenOffice
is one complete package. If you need extra languages, simply install them.
