"Well, the obvious (and most quoted) reason is that it is free. But OpenOffice.org it not just free--it's robust, reliable, flexible, and very extend-able. One way to extend the features of any OpenOffice.org application is with the help of toolbars. With the various included toolbars you can add numerous functions and features to your OpenOffice.org experience that will make your working life much easier. And if you don't see a toolbar that suits your needs, you can always customize one.

"With the help of OpenOffice.org Draw, I am going to show you just how easy it is to extend the features of any given OpenOffice.org tool Not only will you see how valuable toolbars can be, you will see how easy they are to add. And finally, you will see just how simple it is to create your own, customized toolbar.

"Although I will using OpenOffice.org Draw to illustrate how toolbars are used, you can apply what you learn here to all of the tools in the OpenOffice.org suite. So whether you are working within the word processor, the spreadsheet application, or the presentation tool, you will be able to easily add and customize tool bars to make all of your OpenOffice.org experiences richer."
