Google appears to be offering an update to StarOffice 8. I have been using StarOffice 5.2 for some years and I am very happy with it. Does anybody have any views on whether it would be useful for me to update to version 8; i.e. what are its advantages over 5.2?

Unlike Star Office 5.2, Star Office 8 doesn't insist on you using it's own desktop.

Also SO8 supports all but the very latest MS Office formats (ie no support of DOCX files).

Seeing as it's completely free you have nothing to lose by downloading it, so give it a go
