I am encouraging the use of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) whenever possible.  

If you don’t have a copy of Microsoft Office no problem, Open Office is a wonderful, powerful free office suite available for Windows, Linux or Mac.  I have also listed links for Mac and PC FOSS.  If you have a need, there is probably a great FOSS application available.  

Check this list out and let me know what you think in the comments area!

Open Office

OpenOffice.org 3 is the leading open-sourceoffice software suite for word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, graphics, databases and more. It is available in many languages and works on allcommon computers. It stores all your data in aninternational open standard format and can also read and write files from other common office software packages. It can be downloaded and used completely free of chargefor any purpose.
