Since this is a contest (StarOffice has to compete against 8 years hegemony of MS Office), so we need some ground rules.
Tutorials: I Will not use any tutorials. I never use any tutorials anyway, so this rule is born out of conveniece.
Help: I will look for help within the StarOffice application. I will not look on newsgroups etc.
Usage of MS Products: I will use MS Office only if I absolutely have to during this period (I do have MS Office on an old desktop for dire situations.)
