The open source revolution brought its guns around to bear on the Microsoft ship-of-the-line known as Office. Microsoft’s program is by far the market leader and users pay premium prices but OpenOffice will beat them on price points. It’s free and it’s ready to fight.

MadPenguin carried an interview on Thursday about the completed version of OpenOffice and they had some bold words:

Today is a different day. It’s the day that OpenOffice.org leaves its youth, and becomes a mature office suite fit to challenge the market leader, Microsoft Office, with today’s release of OpenOffice.org 2.0 stable version. Get ready for some big changes in the way that the public thinks about the desktop.

More pushes of the OpenOffice plan came last month during a less-than-exciting press conference from Google and Sun Microsystems. They extolled the virtues of this software then.

How this software will fair against the Redmond juggernaut remains to be seen but it does certainly have its advocates and at the unbeatable price, it’s something just about everyone should consider. Heck, the entire state of Massachusetts did.
