OpenOffice to Vista
Question : I want to
download OpenOffice to a Windows Vista machine, but the system
requirements I saw only listed XP. How can I find out if it will work in
Answer : In fact, the just-released OpenOffice.org 2.2
( www.openoffice.org )
does support Microsoft's new operating system.
But the lack of a specific statement of Vista support should not
necessarily spook you; it may only mean that the vendor hasn't updated
its posted system requirements.
What you want to watch out for are warnings against running a program
in Vista, either from an application's developer or from its users --
something that a simple web search along the lines of "(program name)
Vista" could find.
