Openoffice.org - Five things MS Office users do not know

Filed under
OOo

Open Office is one of the most powerful products that the Free Software community has produced to date and is the default office suite on most Linux distros. It is a free, open source, powerful, cross platform and full fledged office productivity suite. If you are still dragging your feet about using this great saviour from the resource hog MS Office, then read on to see what you are missing.

Free
One of the greatest things about OO.org is that is absolutely free. It is released under the LGPL license and thus is free from any licensing hassles whatsoever. You do not have to pay out your hard earned income to use this software. You can install it on as many computers as you want and make as many copies of it as you like, it is up to you. All you have to do is just dowload it and install. Thats it. It runs on all popular platforms out there too. What more can you possibly want?
