Free Office Suite Software
Free Office Suite Software from OpenOffice.org
Aside from accounting software, such as Quickbooks by Intuit, there are two basic types of software for which every business has an immediate need: word processing software and spreadsheet software
. Microsoft Word and Excel, both trademarks of the Microsoft Corporation, are the current reigning champions of these types of software, and are sold, together with a number of other programs, as Microsoft Office. But relatively speaking, they are quite expensive and not all small and home business people can afford them. Now you can get free office suite software
that looks and feels
(and, most importantly, is compatible with)
Excel and Word. Presentation software, similar to Powerpoint by Microsoft, and drawing software are also included in the suite.
Here's what the OpenOffice.org website says: "When OpenOffice.org 1.0 was released, no one could believe that software this good could be free. An estimated 16 million+ people have downloaded the software; many more have installed it from CDs or were passed copies by enthusiastic users."
And further:"OpenOffice.org 1.1 gives you everything you'd expect in office software. You can create dynamic documents, analyse data, design eye-catching presentations, produce dramatic illustrations, and open up your databases. You can publish your work in Portable Document Format (.pdf), and release your graphics in Flash (.swf) format - without needing any additional software."
Open Office is excellent software and it's free. No strings attached. Just click on the following link to go to the OpenOffice.org site and download the latest version:
