Freeware MS Office Replacement, Part 2

Dennis Faas's picture


Yesterday's issue of the Gazette was about a Freeware MS Office Replacement. Infopackets Reader Jim P. made his suggestion with reference to a freeware Microsoft Word .DOC file converter:

" Fast, compatible and free: 602Pro PC SUITE is the freeware alternative to Microsoft Office, and includes a word processor, spreadsheet, photo editor and photo organizer. "

Since then, I have received more new suggestions for Freeware MS Office Replacements. In fact, Tammy F. told me that she uses a freeware program called Open Office:

" I use Open Office. This is a wonderful program that has all the functions of ms office and then some. There is also support available for the product from volunteers. The programs include, writer, calc, draw, impress, global, html editor, & math. I've been using it for several months now and am very impressed with it. It converted all my word documents into their format but the documents can also be converted back to word if needed. "

Pippie1949 also recommended Open Office:

" is [freeware, and] ... includes key desktop applications, such as a word processor, spreadsheet, presentation manager, and drawing program, with a user interface and feature set similar to other office suites’. Sophisticated and flexible, also works transparently with a variety of file formats, including those of Microsoft Office. "

F. Schubert sent me two links:

" I just read your Newsletter (my wife subscribes) and thought I could throw a couple more your way: TextShield and Easy Office. "

And, Gerry P. from Vancouver, Canada sent me a link to a Microsoft's Word converter / viewer utility page:
