Portions of the chapter "Introduction" are taken from Chapter 1, "What is OpenOffice.org?" in the Getting Started guide, which was written by Thomas Astleitner, Richard Barnes, Alan Madden, and Janet M. Swisher, in addition to the authors named above.

Portions of the chapter "Differences in Use Between Writer and Word" were copied (with minor changes only) from a chapter titled "Moving from Microsoft Word" in Jean Hollis Weber’s book, OpenOffice.org Writer: The Free Alternative to Microsoft Word published by O’Reilly Community Press, July 2004, ISBN 0-59600-826-0.

Thanks to Jonathon Blake for information on grammar checkers in the chapter “General Differences in Use between OpenOffice.org and Microsoft Office”.
