StarOffice vs. OpenOffice

I bought a laptop on Friday. For the most part, I'm gonna see if I can install with free (as in beer, mostly) software, rather than software for which I have to pay lots of money. Mostly, this is because this is a play machine. Largest use for this will be to access email and browse the web. WinXP is pre-installed; I am not going to muck with Linux for a play machine.

Which brings me to my first dilemma, should I use StarOffice or OpenOffice? Anyone have experience with either, especially recent versions?

    I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…

  • Unemployed

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

  • Home from the cruise, off to Sunnyvale

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
