OpenOffice celebrates turning 2.0

OpenOffice celebrates turning 2.0
Nearly 50 million copies of OpenOffice have been downloaded, but only recently has the software become a more serious threat to long-dominant Microsoft Office. Version 2.0 brings some significant new features, and Google has pledged to help distribute OpenOffice through a high-profile pact with Sun. But perhaps more significant, uses the standardized OpenDocument format that stands in stark contrast to Microsoft's proprietary formats.

Maybe it'll kick Microsoft into giving out MS Office to the CS students. They give every other software except that.
