A Review Of OpenOffice.org

More than one hundred million people cannot be wrong about OpenOffice.org, and since that is the number you are looking at who have downloaded and made good use of this software, it is worth exploring it further.

Where can I find more information?

The website to visit is http://www.openoffice.org/.  You can download the software from here.

What does the software do?

The OpenOffice software is a complete suite of office tools to use on your computer.  And since it is free it is easy to see why so many people love it.

Whether you have a constant need for a good word processing program or you always have your head in a spreadsheet, you will find a whole array of great programs here that are all rolled into the software.

I’ve noticed it is open source – what exactly does that mean?

When a piece of software is open source it means everyone has the ability to get access to the source code for the software.  This means they are able to create add ons or other additional programs that work with the software to provide further facilities and uses for it.

Another good reason for choosing an open source piece of software like this is the fact that it is provided completely free of charge.

How would I benefit from using OpenOffice?

There are lots of benefits to this software, and everyone finds ways in which it helps them on a daily basis.  For starters it is the perfect choice if you want a good office suite software program on every computer you own.  Since there is no limit to how many computers you can install the software on, you don’t have to worry about not having it when you need it the most.

It is also ideal for both work and play.  Word documents are easy to create, open and use, and you can create spreadsheets and even images very easily as well.

The other main advantage of OpenOffice is the fact that every application included in it has been created in much the same way.  With other types of software you might have to learn about word processing and using spreadsheets in completely different ways, as they might work differently.  This doesn’t apply in this situation, which makes it faster and easier to get the hang of it.

Can I use it for business purposes as well as other purposes?

Yes you can.  In fact lots of businesses are already making good use of the software on a daily basis, from one man bands to huge corporations.

Many businesses like this software because it is given with a free licence to use it.  If you have to pay for software you always have to keep an eye on when it expires, and how many machines you can use it on.  You don’t have that problem with OpenOffice.

How can I get started?
