I am not creating a poll because i simply can't list all the office suites here - too many.

My favourite one at the moment is office xp. ANd i love its dictation and voice command functions.

By the way do you know of any other office packages that have these functions? Anyway jus list your favourite office suite below, regardless of the platform.

Sun microsystems has a hell of a office suite. It's basically the equivalent of all the microsoft suite, except it's free. Jasonlovesjava, you probably use this one don't you?

started out with Corel WordPerfect Office 97.
then I got MS Office 97.
I also like Adobe Acrobat. it's cool and combines with MS Office. too bad Corel doesn't do this.
now I have MS Office 2002 and Corel Office 2002.

anyway, I got used to both of them.

I used Open Office for typing up lab reports this semester. While it is noticeably slower than MS Office, It's free, and I think using free software is better than stealing non-free software.

I'm using StarOffice 5.2 and MS Office 2000. MS office programs are totally the same. Every new release has just a few new things.

You don't get it right! You can write almost everything in Office 97. In the OfficeXP I only see better graphics.

I'm not sure how it all works but apparently Office XP has the ability to call webservices by sending and recieving XML messages.
