I was asking myself that with regard to the "MS Office 2003 vs. OO.org"
comparison article on eWeek (mentioned by Slashdot today, I believe).

One of the cons they listed for OOo was lack of support, since it's
"volunteer driven."  All you get is disconnected online resources.  *shrug*


Is this actually true?  Are there not companies which provide commercial
support for OOo (and StarOffice), at a price?  (Just as you'd pay for MSOffice)

Curious,
-bill!
