With the release of OpenOffice.org 2.0, this office suite is getting closer to commercial office suite (for instance, Microsoft Office) with new features such as open document formation (odt), better user interface, new database frontend and enhanced PDF support etc. However the only drawback for users is that they are so used to Microsoft Office and it is hard for them to relearn and get use to a new user interface and functionalities.
