OpenOffice beta 2 launched with warning

Antony Savvas

A second beta of OpenOffice.org 2.0 has been released, although its sponsors say the program is still probably full of bugs.

OpenOffice is designed as an open source alternative to Microsoft’s Office suite and includes a word processing program, presentation production tools and a database.

The main sponsor of the OpenOffice project is Sun Microsystems, which now has a long-term strategy of making all its software open source.

The OpenOffice website warns users that the second beta isn’t designed as a commercial production solution and should be viewed as a testing opportunity.

The beta can be downloaded here:
