So for students, did you know that you can actually purchase Microsoft Office from the U of M for half the price of what its worth. Now thats one heck of a deal if you ask me but for those that just graduated or aren't going to the U of M anymore there is an alternative.
The program that I am talking about is called Open Office. It's free and has all the essential you need to do your homework or you work assignments. For example they have excel, powerpoint, paint, and word documents. The awesome thing too is that they are compatable with microsoft word so there shouldn't be any big issues with that as well. So if you're looking for a software that will do all the tricks of what Microsoft Office does then Open Office is the best alternative.
