I recommend OpenOffice.org to everyone unless support from Sun Microsystems is a requirement. OpenOffice.org and StarOffice software are pretty much the same, except that StarOffice has other extras: templates, the Adabas database, a WordPerfect filter (on Windows), etc. You can create all the templates you need, including simply opening all your current templates in OpenOffice.org and saving them in the OpenOffice.org template file format.
