Installing OpenOffice

This is the first of a weekly set of posts about OpenOffice.

OpenOffice is the most popular Open Source Office Suite. In this post, I am assuming you want to install OpenOffice on a computer with a Microsoft Windows Operating System.

First, we have to note the system requirements for installing OpenOffice:

  • Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows 2000 (Service Pack 2 or higher), Windows XP, Windows 2003
  • 128 Mbytes RAM

  • 800 x 600 or higher resolution with at least 256 colours
