    Why do you have to order openoffice? It's freely available from I've never tryed Sot office, star office or corel wordperfect 8, but I have to say the openoffice 1.9 is impressive!

    I've not used sot office either, but I have used wordperfect and I much prefer, it works and stable, with the ability to read and save as .docs, and all other msoffice extensions. The 2.0 is still in beta but will be out in a few months, which contains, what at least looks to be, a nice little db tool. its also free and easy to dl.

    I'd go for OpenOffice, too.

    Was I time ago when I tested SOT Office, however, it feels a lot like a clone of Start Office/Open Office. And seriously, it is not that updated as Open Office is now adays. If you want the support and therefore want to buy a copy, by Star Office, however, I do seriously beleive that Open Office will have much more of newer features, and worse or not, but will be better integrated with Microsoft Office as well, even if there allways will be some flaws in the compatibility. My vote goes for OO
