Many people, including small to mid-size businesses are struggling to pay over $150 for a copy of Microsoft Office. I agree that MS Office is the standard suite used for word processing, spreadsheet, presentation, etc but with more than 1 PC in every home, it is becoming expensive to purchase office suite for each PC or for small to mid-side businesses that require an office suite on each desktop and laptop.
Enter OpenOffice.org. A free Open Source Office suite with features rivalling MS Office suite. This free software is a gem and many people and businesses are unaware of this powerful suite. Give it a try and you will not be disappointed. In fact, you may just thank me for saving you money!!!!
