Open Office!


I needed to open a doc file today and I discovered that I don't have Microsoft word installed.

1- Why won't all applications be online .... mo arya7? i hate installing software, I think that all software should be "convereted" to web applications o '7alas. the hard-disk will then be used only for storage!
2- I decided to download OpenOffice. If you're stuck like me download it, It seems to be a good. it comes with six different flavors.
  • Writer: (Microsoft Word, word processor)
  • Base: (Access, databases)
  • Calc: (Excel, spreadsheets)
  • Impress (Power Point, presentations)
  • Math (writing mathematical equations)
  • Draw (sketching diagrams)

I've been using the Open Office for about a year now and it works fine... there's an alternative also if you want to just view or print a Microsoft Word file without being able to edit it... just download MS Word viewer

there's a viewer also for PowerPoint and Excel
