OpenOffice.org Opens up for Business

Filed under
OOo

The economic situation is eating into your profits, and the Microsoft Office licenses look more expensive than before. Or maybe you are familiar with the way Microsoft Office has looked for over a decade: it had a file menu, edit menu, and format menu, and you balk at the thought of retraining your staff for Microsoft Office 2007’s bizarre ribbon. In either case, you don’t have to buy Microsoft Office thanks to OpenOffice.org: the best kept secret in office suites.

OpenOffice.org is a free office suite that includes a word processor, spreadsheet, slide presentation application, drawing program, and database. It’s compatible with practically all operating systems and runs well on old and new computers alike. Don’t worry about exchanging documents with Microsoft Office users because OpenOffice.org is compatible with many file formats including the new Microsoft Office 2007 formats.

Not too good to be true

Don’t let the light-weight price tag fool you to comparing OpenOffice.org with the light-weight Microsoft Works office suite. (Isn’t it a little strange that Microsoft’s Works and Office compete with each other?) OpenOffice.org has sophisticated features making it useful for personal and businesses use.
