OpenGoo - Open Source, Open Standard Web office
« on: May 09, 2009, 03:56:23 AM »
I don't know anything about this, but it seems like a Very Good Idea:

Quote
OpenGoo has one goal: to make the best Web Office. Period.
There is no way we can achieve that goal if we do not work together as a community. We need to bring together the work of tens of thousands of the Open Source developers working on the pieces all around the World. We need your help. Come join OpenGoo now, and be part of a new Web history.
OPENGOO IS FOSS
There are many commercial alternatives. but none of them offer you the advantages of Free Open Source.
When you have an Open Source piece of software you:
Can change it at will
Can switch your IT providers
Pay less
Use it however you want
Feel free to contact us if you have any questions regarding the licencing of OpenGoo
If you don't see how it can fail -
you haven't understood it properly.

Interesting find JennyB!
Would be nice if it could interact with OpenOffice Suite.

Reminds me a bit of http://officezilla.com/
Just a bit!   :)

No, it's server-based (apache, PHP, MySQL) software for collaborative working

http://wiki.opengoo....rg/doku.php/concepts

AFAICS, the only documents you can actually create on-line within OpenGoo at present are WP and presentations that are saved as HTML, but you can upload/download any type of file for work offline, tag them, comment on them, check them in and out, manage who can see and work on them, and link them with other objects. So yes, in that sense it will interact with OpenOffice, but it's a very different animal.
