    OpenOffice is FREE for personal and commercial use. You can make as many copies as you want after that disk.
    The looks of OO.o depends(slightly) of the DE it runs on: KDE, Gnome, etc...

    WinGear OOo is not the same as OOo. It's a commercial product based upon OOo. As such you can't make copies of it for distribution. If you want to make copies just use the OOo open source version.

    That's probably OpenOffice Calc, part of the full install for OpenOffice.org. You should be able get it if you download the full OpenOffice.org install. As to why the WinGear version doesn't have it, ask WinGear?

    You probably can't, since the version that comes with SuSE has been optimized and tweaked to look as good as it does with SuSE.
