extra advantage with OpenOffice.org: possible portability
« on: February 08, 2007, 07:17:59 AM »
Great, detailed review! Will read it more carefully later. For now, I want to comment one thing that I don't think is mentioned in the review: an additional plus with OpenOffice.org is that it can be made portable.

Portableapps.com keeps a portable version updated. Just download, unpack and you're ready to go. I always carry around the portable version on my USB memory stick.

Great point - that is a serious advantage for some people.  Zaine should add that into his review.

Yeah, this is a great suggestion, and even though I don't have or use a USB stick, I can still point out these smallware, portable programs. SoftMaker Office (TextMaker) also includes a portable version of its software.
