    I’ve been using LibreOffice, and its predecessor OpenOffice, for years. Works great, costs nothing and the community is very helpful with questions.

    Attorney Jeff Clark provides a useful overview of cost-effective (and free!) software packages that are Microsoft compatible. The historical perspective on Wordperfect was especially enlightening. Wordperfect was the best word processing package. Microsoft could not compete with the Wordperfect developers so they bought the company for 1.1 billion dollars, effectively ending the competition.

    I wanted to mention that my Microsoft Word Seven software was not compatible with Internet Explorer so I am using Mozilla Firefox as a browser. Mozilla Firefox is produced by a non-profit developer.

    I look forward to Attorney Clark’s next posting which has value for everyone.

    Excellent article. Another very insightful article from Jeffery. I will plan on investigating these alternatives for my office needs.

    Nice post. Another suggestion as alternatives to spreadsheets in microsoft office and google docs would be trying out CollateBox. Worked well for maintainingmy hiring list and employee records
