RE: Spreadsheet

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
1. The newer versions of the Office software are nice. IMO there is only so 
 much improvement you can do on an office suite of software which has, after 
 all, been around in some from since Lotus Symphony in the mid-1980s. I do 
like the Office 365 deal. Basically for Ten Bucks a month  YooEssian, everyone 
 in my family can have it on their systems - including PCs, Macs, and mobile 
 devices of all kinds. I have some PCs, a couple of iPads and various iPhones, 
 and a beautiful new 27" iMac, and it's great to have the software on all 
of them, plus they thrown in a free OneCloud account (and some Skype credit, 
 though I don't really use it).

2. LibreOffice is a fork of the older OpenOffice project. Either one is 
excellent, very polished and professional. Unless you have some real pressing 
 need for MS Office, I think you'd be fine with LO.

I have been using Excel 2003 for the past 11 years, and decided I would look 
 into up-grading to the most recent version.  To get a single user version 
of MS Office with Excel would cost $99 Can.  To get a two seater version was 
 $200+ Can.  To pay for other stuff I don't want is irksome.
1. Is the newer version worth the expense? 2. There is a free spreadsheet 
out there called LibreOffice Calc. Does any one out there know anything about 
 it? Gary
