OpenOffice.org has released an updated version of its open-source Portable OpenOffice.org collaboration suite.
The software fits on a USB stick and now offers full support for Windows 2000, which is still used heavily in the enterprise environment.
Portable OpenOffice.org 2.0.1 includes all the applications that come in OpenOffice.org 2.0.1, but it takes up only 144Mb of storage space. The non-portable version takes up 300Mb of disk space.
The portable software can be used as a laptop replacement when travelling or as a back-up to applications already held on a PC.
Portable OpenOffice.org 2.0.1 can be downloaded from the OpenOffice.org website.
The OpenOffice.org project is heavily backed by Sun Microsystems, which uses the suite's applications as a basis for its more feature-rich Star Office collaboration suite.
