"OpenOffice already has over 100 extensions to choose from, most of which are business-related. You can add extensions that help you create business reports, reduce the size of presentations, or publish your documents as wikis. Wikis are often used by business teams now, but many people get discouraged because they find wiki formatting difficult. It's "absurd," says Suarez-Potts to spend longer formatting a document than writing it, so the wiki extension saves people the hassle.
