How To Get Microsoft Office Free

Microsoft Office is a suite of applications mainly used to produce documents, spreadsheets, presentations, graphics and databases. Most of the software programs can be purchased separately, but Microsoft Office bundles them together in a package that contains:

  • Microsoft Word
  • Microsoft Excel
  • Microsoft Power Point
  • Microsoft Access
  • Additional Office Business Applications such as Outlook, OneNote, and Publisher

Microsoft Office can cost up to $300 for the entire suite of programs. However, there is a Microsoft Office free open source alternative—OpenOffice Suite—that functions identically to Microsoft Office. The best part? OpenOffice is absolutely free to use and 100% compatible with Microsoft Office.

OpenOffice Suite contains all of OpenOffice’s applications, and includes:

  • OpenOffice Writer
  • OpenOffice Calc
  • OpenOffice Impress
  • OpenOffice Base
  • Open Office Math
