Go-oo

Go-oo

Go-oo is an open source suite derived from the highly popular OpenOffice.org.

It includes patches that have been refused by Sun Microsystems. It is important to appreciate that Go-oo is not generally considered to be a fork of OpenOffice.org as it follows the same development path but includes patches that have not (yet) been included in the OpenOffice.org build.

Some of the features and improvements have not been included simply because of technical, business or legal reasons.

It is frequently forgotten that many popular Linux distributions such as Ubuntu, openSUSE, Mandriva, and Debian actually ship with some of the patches provided by Go-oo and not just vanilla OpenOffice.org.

Besides the benefits offered by additional functionality (detailed below), Go-oo has lower memory requirements, it is quicker to start up, and more responsive in use for some operations.

The development of Go-oo commenced in 2007.
