What is OpenOffice?

Open Office is a free suite of tools that copies many of the functions of Microsoft Office. Open Office has been under development for more than 10 years and can run on Windows, Appleā€™s OSX, and Linux.

It is multilingual and includes a word processor, spreadsheet, presentation, database and other tools. It can read and save files in Microsoft Office formats, like .doc for word processing files, .xls for spreadsheet files, and .ppt for PowerPoint. Most users add Thunderbird for email and Firefox for internet browsing, which are also free.
