TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I thought StarO was much the same as OpenO except that the fee included
help desk support and some additional templates, but according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Staroffice there are a few more differences
such as a macro recorder, extra fonts, and clip art.
StarOffice is supported on fewer OSes (e.g. not Mac) and fewer languages
though. I don't know if there are any other gotchas.
My main objection to OO (and I assume it's the same for SO) is that you
have to download the whole thing whenever there's an upgrade. OTOH I'm
mainly interested in the word processor so unless there's some
significant enhancement to the Writer component (or some dire security
hole is unearthed) I generally skip the interim updates.
