Lotus Symphony is built on OpenOffice code, is it not? And what little I have seen of OpenOffice, it sure looks good.
Maybe this will help throw some light.
I need to get an office suite, like yesterday and at present can't afford Office 2007. So I was wondering what to go for there are two free packages I've looked at Open Office and Lotus Symphony, but both seem to get mixed reviewsSo folks what do you use and what would you recommend for meBy the way I have to be able to keep my exsiting Office documents and be able to update them any help and advice appreciated
Since both are free, how about trying both of them out and making a decision based on your needs?
Though i would have gone fore Open Office.
BTW, till the time you get hold of any of them, why don't you try out a 60 day trial of Office 2007? The students and home edition is pretty cheap!
Also, you could use your existing office documents with Google Documents till the time you finally install something.
Thanks for all your replies I have downloaded Lotus and Open Office, both have much going for them, but since Open Office is quite compatable with MS Office which I would have through choice if I could afford it I think I will go with Open Office
