OpenOffice.org is a multiplatform, multilingual, open source office suite. It is available for most of the common operating systems like Linux, Unix, Windows and Mac OS X. OpenOffice.org is available at no cost. It uses the OASIS Standard OpenDocument format, but is also interoperable with every major office suite.
OpenOffice.org is based on StarOffice, an office suite originally developed by StarDivision and acquired by Sun Microsystems in August 1999.
The openSUSE build is based on the Go-oo project. It includes lots of bug fixes, features and optimisations compared to the regular /vanilla OpenOffice.org build, for example:
better startup performance
improved VBA interoperability
additional import filters (SVG, WordPerfect Graphics, Microsoft Works, ...)
native KDE Open/Save dialog
new 3D slide transitions
rich field support
multimedia in Impress via GStreamer
