So first of all what we'll do is we'll take a look at how to install OpenOffice on both the Mac and Windows platforms, so both Mac and PC there, and then what we'll do is we'll get started inside OpenOffice Writer and it's inside Writer where we'll take a look at inserting some text, formatting text, adjusting page layout, and so on. Lots of great stuff in there. We'll also get into things like tables and graphics and styles, all kinds of great stuff in there. And then what we'll do is we'll shift our attention to working with Calc, working with OpenOffice Calc, and it's there where we'll get into entering data and formatting our content. We'll also take a look at working with formulas and also functions as well, and there's lots more great stuff related to Calc that we'll take a look at there as well.
