Free Office Software

Can it be possible, Free office software? If you are looking for a really good alternative to Microsoft Office then you should look no further than Open Office. The latest release is OpenOffice 4.1.2 from Apache, and it’s packed full of office applications and features, so much so that it’s easily on a par with Microsoft Office, and the best of it, it’s totally free to download and install. I’ve used it for year in my network lab and I’ve always found it to be stable and reliable. I think one of the biggest perceived issues with using an office suite other than MS Office is that the most common document format for text is MS Word. However that’s not even a problem as OpenOffice allows the user to create and save documents as dot.doc or dot.dox files so that they can be open with MS word. Other advantages are that the install and application is a fraction of the size of MSOffice, and that you don’t have to be online as you do with Office365.

A word or two from the developers:

Apache OpenOffice 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. The result: Apache OpenOffice does everything you want your office software to do, the way you want it to.

Apache OpenOffice is easy to learn, and if you’re already using another office software package, you’ll take to OpenOffice straight away.
