    "OpenOffice, intended to be a free, open-source alternative to Microsoft Office, released the beta version of 3.0 in May. OpenOffice 3.0 will feature a new Start Center, icons, and zoom control in the status bar, as well as support for the ".docx" file format used by Microsoft Office 2007. The release candidate also includes additional, technical updates, details of which are provided on the OpenOffice Web site."

    Yep, I've been anxiously awaiting for 3.0 to be released. I'm running OO 3.0rc2 now and plan on upgrading to 3.0rc4 next week. (y)

    Peace...

    I will go check the torrents and see if I can help lighten the load.

    Edit: No torrents for the final yet. Their site is still in the same state.

    Wow, their site is currently just an apology and a list of place where you can download it. Sounds like a great release. I'm excited to see it.
