Comment on Symphony

Tried Symphony 3 Beta 2.
Pro: Symphony can open multiple documents in tabs, and starts up slightly faster than Open Office.
Con: Byzantine download procedure; wouldn't want to go through this every time there's an update. Symphony takes more space on your disk than Open Office, even though it has less features. Review at Datamation says Symphony uses more RAM than Open Office, & can take a year for new Open Office features to be integrated into Symphony. Interface has IBM's branding on it. Has IBM light blue background instead of Open Office gray; the gray is easier on the eyes.
IMO: Use OpenOffice or NeoOffice.
