Today there was a lady that needed a laptop fixed, and needed her Word 2003 to work again.  Of course she did not want to have to pay for something that she had already bought, and it was mission critical to get to her Word files. Everyone was at a lost, the only way we could get her up and running was to buy MS Office 2010, doom filled the room!

enter….THE ONLY PERSON WHO KNOWS ANYTHING ABOUT OPEN SOURCE SOFTWARE…man….!!!

I told her about Libre Office, and to steer clear of the evil of Open Office that use to be good but is no longer.

Yes you can open any of your office files with Libre Office, yes you download it for free!

No it is not shady, some people have pride in their software and just want to move forward, not to be hindered by install codes and mandatory upgrades that cost a lot of money every six months.  Go to Libre Office, and if your friends do not know about it then tell them!  Don’t be so cruel as to let others wallow in the pits of despair like you once did…be a good friend, what more can I say?
