49A meaningful IT expense that most businesses have is Microsoft Office software. Depending on the edition you get, it can easily cost $300 to $500 per computer. If you get it bundled with a new computer it may only cost $200 to $300, but that still adds up to a lot of money. The worst part is that every time a new version comes out, you have to re-buy the software because Microsoft doesn’t do MS Office upgrades. And that’s why so many organizations today are a few generations behind – it’s too expensive to keep current.
Take a look at LibreOffice. It’s a full office suite containing word processing, spreadsheets, presentations and more. It’s solid, professional, reliable software that can directly open and save files in MS Office format. And it’s FREE!
How can it be free? It’s one of the best examples of open source software – no advertising or other gimmicks- it’s provided and supported by thousands of software professionals who believe in community driven projects.
