Hi, A heads up to those who have perhaps got a new computer but not Microsoft Office and are not keen to splash out on Microsoft Office. There is another option. OpenOffice downloads onto your computer and has most of the features that Office 2007 does (it can not embed audio etc but most people will not need to do so). It can open and save into Microsoft Office formats and is very fast.

Why expired

Possibly because it's FREE??

Why Expired ????

Isn't free the best price ????

Especially when the product is just good at the alternatives which charge you several hundred pounds for.

Strongly Recommended - Fantastic Deal

its hardly a "deal" when its free though is it?


it does not come close to the awesomoeness of microsoft office

"awesome" and "microsoft office" should not be used in the same sentence unless it's "wow, it's awesome that I don't have to use microsoft office anymore" ;-)

Why has this been expired and posts deleted????

Have emailed the site to ask why - maybe because there were sensible replies made and that upset the person who only felt able to make rude and crass remarks about the original posting.
Interesting that my post about its benefits got deleted....


it does not come close to the awesomoeness of microsoft office

Nor does it come close to the silly prices microsoft charge -

Thank you for reinstating this post.

Everyone to their own choice re programmes but its good to let people know of the alternatives.

PS - with OO you can export direct to .pdf :-)

Other free suites include Google Docs, Zoho, Go-oo (patches refused by Sun) and more. Lots of choice in the free department...
