Please answer the following questions, along with describing your problem or question.

Which version of OpenOffice.org are you using: 2.3.1
What Operating System (version) are you using: Vista Basic

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Your question: I don't have a question. I just wanted to say what a fine product this is. I was using the new version of Microsoft Office 2007 and, for the life of me, could not figure out how to do a simple task like my business card or my business return labels. Neither could my roommate, or my Asian computer-geek friend. So I took a chance and downloaded Open Office, with a bit of trepidation, and was surprised at how quickly I knocked out the above issues. Everything was much more intuitive. I am completely surprised by this, as I have been on the Microsoft juggernaut for many years. My hat goes off to the people who have developed this. I feel very obligated to make a donation. The product is remarkable.

Furthermore, and for me, this is very bold, I actually deleted Office 2007 from my machine. That's how happy I am with Open Office. :) :D
