Free Text Editor, Free Spreadsheet Editor and More
Free Web/ Office Tools ~ OpenOffice
This post is the first in a series of open source equivalents of industry standard tools used for developing websites, spreadsheets, text documents, print material, multimedia and whatever. Share the web!
I’ve come across a lot of useful open source tools – some better than others- the following being one of the best.
If you’re stuck using MicroSoft Works spreadsheet and word processor 😦 check out OpenOffice. This free software can do all the things MicroSoft Office does and possibly more.
OpenOffice has a excel type spreadsheet, a Word type text editor, a Powerpoint type slide show builder and a couple more bits in the pack. You can open MicroSoft Word and Excel documents in it and save your own documents with Word and Excel extensions (97/2000/XP and others are available from dropdown when saving files).
OpenOffice is free, it’s professional standard and it’ll save you money if you were thinking of purchasing MicroSoft Office.
