Download of the Month: OpenOffice.Org

July 22, 2009

I can’t even begin to list the amount of times someone has said to me “I don’t have PowerPoint at home” or  that they didn’t have any other office suite application at home. There have been literally too many times to count. And you know what I do every time? I tell them to go home and go to openoffice.org and download it.

OpenOffice.Org is a free office suite that is compatible with Microsoft Office, so you can still read and write all your old Microsoft Office documents. The suite comes with:

  • Writer which is the word processor (Word)
  • Calc which is the spreadsheet creator (Excel)
  • Impress which is the presentation creator (PowerPoint)
  • Base which is the database manager (Access)
  • Draw which is a vector graphics creator (Visio)
  • Math which is an equation editor (Equation Editor)

So now you all have no excuse for not being able to do a presentation, spreadsheet, or paper anymore.
