I Like MS Office, But Free is Free

I never get tired of telling my friends about free stuff on the web that replaces products that you have to pay for. This one, OpenOffice, replaces a fairly expensive suite of applications that you have certainly heard of, Microsoft Office. I like MS Office. I'm not a Microsoft basher. I think their products work darn well. On the other hand, why spend hundreds of denari when you can do what you need to do with something that costs NOTHING?

The old adage that you get what you pay for doesn't apply here, I assure you. In this case you get much more than you pay for, a really great product. OpenOffice has the equivalent to Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, and more. And, the documents you create with OpenOffice are compatible with MS Office's apps! How cool is that?
