I am appointed as a computer teacher and the first lecture I have to give is on the topic "OpenOffice". Till now, I have studied, taught and used Microsoft Office. I know, both of them will be related but there might be some difference in the name of tools and functionalities. Can someone please tell me the big differences between Open Office and MS Office. Also tell me some nice points to make my first lecture interesting.
