Hi Terri. This is a time of transition. LibreOffice will be the WAY TO GO from here on out....but at THIS TIME, I would install OpenOffice 3.2.1, get familiar with it.....and USE
it.  It's a great piece of software.

The next release....3.3.0 is imminent. If OpenOffice 3.3.0 comes out first...I would hold off....and then install LibreOffice 3.3.0 when it comes out late this month or early December
and just stay with it.

It will be the most advanced and feature rich free Office software available..and already incorporates many enhancements that the "vanilla" OpenOffice doesn't have....but I wouldn't recommend beta software for regular use (although I am using it and have had no problems....)

I DO think, contra from what I just wrote, that Beta 3 should be pretty safe and will come out within if you want....trash all I said...install beta 3 (or whatever they will call it) and enjoy LibreOffice and it's rapid advancement as so many developers are working on it as
I write...

Hello! I've been lurking for a couple of weeks and am a new user to open office. I would classify myself as just an average everyday sort of user. I have joined several of the mailing lists and read all of them. Often times I can follow along and learn stuff, but often times everything is way over my head. My question to the List is being a beginning user, should I uninstall Open Office and now install Libra Office? Should I wait until more of the bugs are worked out? Thank you for all the hard work that several of you have put in so that many of us average users can benefit from it.
