Looking for an Office?
Microsoft Office has been the market leader for productivity software for the last decade and a half, and up until now has gone relatively unchallenged. There is a reason for this: it is quite simply the best package that money can buy.
However, if you are on a budget all is not lost. One of the most under-rated gems on the internet has to be OpenOffice, the open-source free office suite available for a simple click of the mouse. This has to be the most complete cross platform office alternative available, matching most if not all of the features offered by MS Office.
Sure, the interface isn't as jazzy, not featuring the latest "ribbon" style menus now features in Office 2007. However if you have used Office 2003 and below, you will find yourself at home with this free alternative. Its fully compatible with MS Office too, with the ability to open and save in the Office format.
So if you're feeling frisky or looking for an alternative, go ahead, give them a try - let us know what you think.
