In this series of posts I’m going to give tips on using technology to make your hours behind your desk that bit easier.
Tip Number Nine: Open Office
Save yourself a large chunk of cash by legally downloading and installing a pice of software that could replace an App that would easily costs £100+
“Open Office is an open-source application suite whose main components are for word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, graphics, and databases.” Wikipedia
In other words it’s Word/Office/Excell/Powerpoint/Pages/Numbers etc. for free!
Gone are the days when Open Office would crash on you for no reason, reformat a project and make you want to break down into tears of frustration. It’s now a stable App that can compete with the big boys on features, help you with a great online support community & trouble shooting site and can’t be beaten on price.
This tip a real money saver, take advantage of it. Download it now, get used to it so when you next buy a computer you won’t feel compelled to spend on a piece of software that you can basically get for free!
