    Microsoft Office alternative – ThinkFree


    With the launch of Microsoft Vista coming soon, that means the new version of Microsoft Office will be launching soon too. For someone like me who have 4 computers at home, obtaining a legitimate licence for each of them could be pretty hefty.

    With Christmas around the corner, I want to introduce you all to an alternative to Microsoft Office, see it as a Christmas gift, and it is Thinkfree, an online office which features the following –

    – store 1GB of documents for free
    – create, view, and edit Microsoft Office compatible files over the web
    – collaborate using group editing and file sharing
    – publish documents to our DocExchange, your web pages, blogs, or Internet applications
    – quickly search from published or private files for the exact file you need

    Sign up at the following link.
