OpenOffice.org Is Three

From the “yesterday’s news today” department (I know, I know)… the open-source office software project OpenOffice.org turned three yesterday. They’re up to version 1.1 of their software, and it’s evolved into a pretty solid alternative to Microsoft Office for most basic uses, and it includes some nice touches (like save-to-PDF capability) that have yet to appear in Office. Here’s a belated happy birthday to the OpenOffice.org team, and best wishes as they push forward into the future! [Seen on Slashdot]

If you think anything I write here represents the opinions of anybody but myself, you need more help than I can give you. The opinions are all mine, folks. Nobody else's. ESPECIALLY not my employer's.

If that's too hard to understand... well, I'm sorry. There's only so much I can do. I'm not a therapist, and I'm not a miracle worker. (Unless you consider staying employed in this economy a miracle.) I wish I could help you work through your delusional belief that I'm speaking for anyone else but myself. Honestly, I do. But in the end, that's a monkey you'll have to get off your back on your own. Sorry.
