Re: [PLUG] OpenOffice 1.1 upgrade

I disagree. OOo 1.1 has a lot of useful extra's mostly in the form of
taking less steps to accomplish a task. You may think of this as a minor
difference - but for my clients who are used to Word, telling them that
the equiv feature takes 2 menus and 4 mouse click for MS's one or two
click is not good. They do complain and I don't blame them. 
I've been using OOo B2 for PPC for quite a while and have been very
happy with it.
