|Most of the OpenOffice vs MS Office reviews I have seen try and compare what features are in MS Office, but NOT in OpenOffice. However has anyone come up with a comprehensive list of features in OpenOffice 1.1.x or in the current 2.0 Snapshot (1.9m65) builds that are NOT in current versions of MS Office?
I am not talking about thinks like OOo is Open Source, but more of true end user features. Like:
-OOo 1.1.x and 1.9x can export files in PDF Format something Word/Excel can't do without separate add on.
-OOo 1.1.x and 1.9x can export Impress Presentation files as Flash Files for the web.
Anyone have a list of other features?
Please include the version number for the feature as there may be some features in 2.0 Snapshots, but not 1.1 or not yet reimplemented in the 2.0 Snapshots.
I think this kind of list could be helpful in some marketing campaigns also.
thanks for the info,
