IF YOU WANT SOME­THING FREE BE­YOND MI­CROSOFT OF­FICE

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - GG TOP 40 AT WORK -

While Mi­crosoft Of­fice is con­sid­ered be best as far as text, spread­sheets, pre­sen­ta­tions, data man­age­ment, etc, are con­cerned, there are good al­ter­na­tives out there. The most pop­u­lar is the Apache Open Of­fice, an open-source of­fice soft­ware suite for word pro­cess­ing, spread­sheets,

pre­sen­ta­tions, graph­ics, data­bases and more. It works on all com­mon com­put­ers and is avail­able in many lan­guages as well. All the data is stored in an in­ter­na­tional open-stan­dard for­mat and is ca­pa­ble of read­ing and writ­ing files from other of­fice soft­ware. This free soft­ware can be used by in­di­vid­u­als, ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tutes and cor­po­rate of­fices. And then there is Google Docs for any­one with a Google ac­count. This of­fice pro­duc­tiv­ity suite of­fers a set of per­for­mance tools and stores ev­ery­thing in the cloud on Google Drive. It also in­te­grates a num­ber of

Google ser­vices, in­clud­ing Gmail, GChat and Google Cal­en­dar.
