Publisher's Description

Go-OO is a fork of OpenOffice that has impressive features which should be in the official OpenOffice, but for some reason or another aren't, such as support for OpenXML, better Microsoft Binary support, Excel VBA macros, Visio diagrams and Word Perfect Graphics support. It also boasts significantly better start times -- at least on our poorly equipped test machine.

I am not sure why this hasn't been updated on betanews as I 'm testing version GoOo-3.1.1-5 and it works a treat. I do hope that betanews updates their inclusion of the adaptation of OO as it is a worthy application.

A definite improvement over OO.org. Load times are only slightly faster, so don't get your hopes up too much, but the added format support (particularly .wps, still an all-too-common format) is great and seems to work well. The promised improved form controls seem to be present, but are still not fully compatible with MS Office equivalents (at least not from Office 2000). The look has also been improved with more modern-looking icons. The only downside is that it's based on OO.org 2.4 so you can't easily have it installed alongside standard 2.4 (the current main branch release), nor does it gain the (potentially significant) benefits of the upcoming (and now in beta) OO.org 3.0. I'm very much hoping these guys roll their changes into a 3.0 branch. If so I'd switch over to this version full-time, enterprise-wide.
