7) Question of the Month about Software Training:
Each month Jeff Love will answer a current or important question that we have received about computer and software training.
January 2004 Question:
Where can I download copies of the Microsoft Office software for free?
Many sites that offer copies of the Microsoft Office software to download for free are often offering pirated or stolen copies. EducationOnlineForComputers.com does not offer any pirated software for you to download. We can give you some suggestions on how you can obtain low-cost software though.
If you are a student Microsoft offers discounted software. Many times you can get copies of this software from your local campus bookstore. Some retail outlets will also sell you discounted software with a valid student ID.
You can also find used copies at auction sites such as ebay (http://www.ebay.com). Be careful when purchasing used copies from a website to make sure that you are buying a licensed copy.
If you still want a free Office solution you can look at OpenOffice (http://www.openoffice.org). OpenOffice is a free alternative to Microsoft Office that works on many different operating systems such as Windows, Mac, and Linux. OpenOffice contains a Word Processor, spreadsheet, and presentation applications. It reads and writes files that are in the same format as Microsoft Word, Excel and Powerpoint.
I hope this helps you.
