Open and Create Microsoft Documents Without Microsoft Office

When it comes to word processing and spreadsheets, it’s an all-Microsoft world. But you don’t have to pay hundreds of dollars for Office to create and read Microsoft files; instead you can download a free office suite.

For better or worse, the Windows world has settled on Word and Excel as the word processing and spreadsheet standards. But as anyone who has recently bought a new computer can tell you, buying an office suite that includes them can push up the cost of your computer by several hundred dollars.

If you want to play well with others, you need to be able to create and read Word and Excel files. That doesn’t mean, however, that you need to buy Microsoft Office. In fact, you can download a free office suite that includes a Word-compatible word processor, an Excel-compatible spreadsheet, as well as image-editing and photo album software. It’s called the 602Pro PC SUITE, and it is available from 602 Software (http://www.software602.com).
