I sometimes save documents in SXW format but then need to access them at my high school, at which software installation is not permitted. Thus, a small application to view OpenOffice files would be very convenient for me and I'm sure many others.

I also think we should have an OpenOffice.org Viewer. It should be: - as small as possible - as fast as possible - crossplatform - possible to print from it The viewer could also have a button like Edit this file to open the current file in OpenOffice.org if it is installed on the computer. It should also have a link to the download page for OOo so that a user can quickly get to the page from where he can download the full OOo package.

I am using OOo since 2000 as it was StarOffice 5.2. This is a great project which, on my opinion, is now quite mature to go public! But it focuses on MS O compatibility rather then to develop its own features in more depth. For the second scenario to develop it is extremely needed a LIGHTWEIGHT STANDALONE viewer for ALL OOo document formats, so I don't need anymore to convert my native documents to some external states, but simply make an attachment of relevant viewer or even simply provide a link for it. Moreover, it was a great idea, expressed already here, to provide a link for OOo website to download a FULL VERSION of OOo suite. Spread a word of OOo!!! :)

Support this idea! I also think it should have support for viewing PDF files and be included with OOo, but also exists as a separate application. It would be very useful, if you want to present a file quickly and with highest performance.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on my owner to the owner "requirements".
