Converting From Microsoft Office To OpenOffice

In Detroit high school opens its desktops, a school converted from using Microsoft Office to OpenOffice, saving lots of money and not requiring hardware upgrades.

OpenOffice.org is…

an office suite and an open-source project. Compatible with all other major office suites, the product is free to download, use, and distribute.

Pender and I have been using it at work for awhile. The only problem is OpenOffice doesn’t support VBA, which is used a lot at work.

Now that I have a new computer, I’m planning on removing Windows from the old machine and putting Linux on it; and since it’ll be used just by my wife, it’ll have to be user-friendly, so it should be an interesting experiment, which I’ll post about when I get around to making the conversion.
