OpenOffice.org

OpenOffice.org is an office application package coded open source (open source) that can be obtained free of charge. The package includes the components of word processing (word processor), spreadsheets (spreadsheet), presentation, vector illustration, and the data warehouse (database). OpenOffice.org is intended as a rival to Microsoft Office and can be run on various platforms, including Windows, Solaris, Linux, and Mac OS X. OpenOffice.org supports the open document standard for data exchange, and can be used without cost.

OpenOffice.org is based on code from StarOffice, an office suite developed by StarDivision and acquired by Sun Microsystems in August 1999, which was then acquired by Oracle in 2010. Code origin of this suite was released as open source project in July 2000, with the aim of breaking the market dominance of Microsoft Office by providing lower-cost options, high quality, and open. Source code for this application suite is available under two different software license: LGPL and SISSl; from version 2.0, he is only available under LGPL.

Projects and software called "OpenOffice", but the project manager reported that this term is a trademark held by another group, thus requiring them to take the "OpenOffice.org" as its official name, and also abbreviated as OOo.
