So is the OpenOffice book a lot like that in style, tone, content, etc.?
And my other question, what's the story with the Mac version of OpenOffice? I haven't been checking the status, but do you have any news on that? We don't want to be on the bleeding-edge of the early-adopter plan for this, but beta is fine as long as it's fairly stable and not too hard to install.
Thanks!! Looking forward to getting the OO book!
p.s. if anybody happens to find themselves in Colorado next week, a group of Java folks (Sun and ex-Sun employees) are going to be skiing at Copper Mountain all week. If anybody wants to join us and talk Java over Java in the lodge...

Thanks, Tom K

Can you spell out for us the various incarnations / versions of star office / open office, how they compare, and which of your books covers what ? Also what's in a 'resource kit' ? And if you want to make the switch which version do you recommend, and why?
