Software

If you are a Linux user and need an office suite, there is always OpenOffice.org, but SoftMaker Office could prove a more satisfactory option, especially if you need to exchange files with others using Microsoft Office.

SoftMaker is probably not well known to many readers, but the firm has been developing office applications for many years, covering multiple platforms including Windows, Linux, Windows Mobile and portable devices with Windows CE.
