4 Free Alternatives to Microsoft Office


Microsoft Office is the most popular program on the market at the moment.  Prising yourself away and using a different program can be difficult when you've used it for so many years.

Recently I decided to go cold turkey try an alternative to Microsoft Office.  This was due to the amount of money Microsoft charge for the privilege of a monthly subscription or one off payment for a product key.

Discover below the equivalent word processing program beyond Word:

Google Docs

Google Docs

Google docs offers a variety of templates from cv's, reports to letters.  If you have a small business it even has a great substitute for Excel, allowing you to do spreadsheets to.  Like Office online you can open, edit and create files from your browser.  It also supports PDF files which is a bonus!

Office Online

Office Online

Office online is a free version of Microsoft Office.  It supports Word, Excel, Power Point and One Note files.  Again you can create and edit files from your browser.  It also handles PDF files.

Apache Open Office

Apache Open Office

A well know software with tools for word processing, presentation, spreadsheet and graphics.  You can save documents in the open documents feature, also read Microsoft Word documents, as well as being able to save your work in Microsoft Office format.

Libre Office

Libre Office

This software was developed by the Document Foundation, it offers the same six applications as Apache Open Office.  In the standard package you get PDF import, presentation minimiser and wiki publisher.
