OpenOffice 2.0 launched (or so I'm told...)

I've been an OpenOffice user for at least 18 months, but I'm pleased to see that OpenOffice 2.0 has now been released. The beta releases have shown that its something worth waiting for, but if you're trying to download it right now from the OpenOffice site, you may you may need to wait a bit longer! I think it may be victim of its own success at the moment.

In the meantime you can read about it at various places online. New features includes better interoperability with MS Office, a new database module, advanced XML capabilities and native support for the OpenDocument format.

UPDATE 25 Oct 05: I can get to the site now!
