First release of LibreOffice arrives with improvements over OOo

First release of LibreOffice arrives with improvements over OOo:
"The Document Foundation (TDF) has announced the availability of LibreOffice 3.3, the first official stable release of the open source office suite. It introduces a number of noteworthy new features and there are improvements throughout the included applications. More significantly, the release reflects the growing strength of the nascent LibreOffice project."

I didn't bother to install OpenOffice when I upgraded to Windows7. GoogleDocs was sufficient. Now that the open source credibility of the office package is restored (out from under the thumb of Oracle) I'm going to install this ASAP. Google Docs is as much a corporate dead end as Oracle's "Open Office" offering.
