Alternative to Microsoft office Use Open Office Its Free Open Source

OpenOffice.org 3 is the leading open-source office software suite for word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, graphics, databases and more. It is available in many languages and works on all common computers. It stores all your data in an international open standard format and can also read and write files from other common office software packages. It can be downloaded and used completely free of charge for any purpose

I see a lot of articles about Microsoft Office but the avergae home user doesn’t need most of the stuff contained in Office. A cheap alternative is Open Office which is available from http://www.openoffice.org. It is sponsored by Oracle. It was sponsored by Sun but I believe that Oracle bought out Sun.

Its completely free to download and use. It includes compatible versions of Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Database, Draw and Math. Files can be saved to a whole range of file types including Microsoft file types to send to co-workers or friends who have Microsoft Office.
