Gallery: Enhancements for OpenOffice 3

The third major release of the OpenOffice.org office productivity suite made its appearance on Monday — meeting with such apparent demand that the OpenOffice.org servers promptly crashed. At the time of writing on the following day, the organization still has only a cut-down homepage, listing mirror sites from which the suite can be downloaded.

One major reason for the significance of OpenOffice 3 is the fact that it can run natively on the Mac — previously, it needed to be run within a windowed X11 session. But the suite has had many other enhancements, one of which is the welcome screen shown in this screenshot.
