    Downloading individual Open Office Programs


    My aunt is running Windows, and has the entire Microsft Office suite, except, for some reason, Powerpoint, which she desperately needs. Is there any site from which or any way she could install just Impress, or will she have to take the whole Open Office suite?

    I believe that you can choose what components to install from the OOo installer. You do, however, have to download the whole thing.

    The programs are totally interconnected... They're all pieces of the same program really. And it would probably be better to just install the whole thing anyways, especially given the horrible example of programming gone wrong (very) known as MS Word.
    I mean, excel and powerpoint are okay, I like Impress and Calc a lot better, but MS should be paying people to use Word. Word has been in DIRE need of a total rewrite for too many years now.
