Again LO is one in the "5 free downloads every student needs"


Here is the text for an article where LibreOffice is [again] on the
lists for what every students need to download.

This site is used by many people - know several locally - to "help"
decide what is worth to try and/or use.  I get several of the types of
e-newsletters a week coming from this service.  SO, several times a year
LibreOffice is listed as the best alternative to MS Office.

Read the text and see if there is anything that should be changed/edited.

I really think having someone from the Board, or the Marketing person,
should send to this service the major announcements for The Document
Foundation and LibreOffice.

5 free downloads every student needs
By Francis Navarro, Komando.com


LibreOffice

Nothing beats free, especially for students who are tight on the budget.
If you don't want to shell out for the king of productivity software
Microsoft Office, then LibreOffice might just be enough for your needs.

LibreOffice is a free and open-source office suite that's compatible
with Microsoft Office files. Since it's an open-source software, the
program is continually updated at no charge to you.

LibreOffice offers six programs that will feel instantly familiar to you
if you've used Office before. Writer, Calc, and Impress are equivalent
to Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. Even better, LibreOffice can
open and edit the documents you made in Office and can save new files in
Office formats.

Aside from Writer, Calc and Impress, LibreOffice includes drawing,
database and equation programs, too. On top of these, there are plenty
of extensions and templates you can add to give the program more features.

Re: Again LO is one in the "5 free downloads every student needs"

I think this part: "shell out for the king of productivity software
Microsoft Office", is not necessary and this undervalues LibreOffice and
gives an impression to the user that why should them download LO when
they can get "the best" as said in the text.

I agree with that. Maybe the following works:
"If you don't want to shell out for  Microsoft Office, then LibreOffice
might well be (more) than suitable for your needs."

Thanks for sharing and doing that important publication!

Yes, we all can slip up with Grammar and other things.

I am glad we are sending the announcements to these e-newsletters. We
need as many places that lets us know about these useful packages.

I found OpenOffice.org within an "Author's Note" in a book series of a
popular author [fantasy].  Later I read of LO just as the final release
candidate came out for the first version. Where I read about it, I do
not remember, but kept looking for info for a new OOo release.  I tend
to let others know about the new tech news I read about, and other
important items.
