    Don't be too disappointed. A lot of the things that Sun has just got round to implementing in OO3 were in Novell's OO2.4.

    Eventually the other things will be in Novell's next version but, on past performance, so will a lot of enhancements which won't reach the Sun version for at least another six months after Novell release their next version.

    I thought it might worth mentioning that if you want to use Novell's version of OO.o, you don't need to be using openSUSE. You can download it from Your Office Suite(I did not make that change! The forums do it automatically, and its kinda annoying...). I've installed this on many windows computers, and a derivative of it is on my sisters mac.

    OK - I wait final-version in next week
    but from opensuses repos, is it the Novell-version or Sun-version from OO?

    Go-OO is the site where the developers who are waiting for Sun to accept their changes put their version of OO; Novell's version is very similar if not identical as some of the developers who contribute to Go-OO also work for Novell.

    The Go-OO site allows people who are not using openSUSE to download much the same version without the Novell corporate bits.

    jake45,

    I'm also looking to do the upgrade from 2.4 to 3.0 of openSuSE 11.0.

    As I see it the OpenOffice servers are over loaded right now. I'm actually pulling down the .rpm version presntly, but will wait a bit until I see an official repo site to add to my 11.0 set up.

    If you find a repo site please post it. Thanks in advance.

    BTW, I'm not sure what all the differences between the various versions out there are, but 3.0 seems better than what I have. LOL!
