OpenOffice.org is a modern office suite compatible with Microsoft Office. It features word processing, spreadsheet, presentation, drawing, and database components.
Select the desired component using the GNOME main menu at "Applications->Office". Base is the database application. Calc is the spreadsheet application. Draw is a vector drawing application. Impress is equivalent to PowerPoint. Math is an equation editor. Writer is the word processor application. Printer Administration allows for managing printer access.

StarOffice on Solaris
Solaris 10 includes StarOffice instead of OpenOffice. StarOffice uses the same code as OpenOffice so document compatibility is expected. Much of the functionality works identically as well.
