It is Microsoft Word, Folks!


Yes, monopoly or not...Microsoft Word is the standard word processor for sharing files with others and for printing in public labs. Several times this week, I have had to disappoint students when I tell them we only have Word.

Can't afford it? (It is SPENDY!!!!!!) Here are some inexpensive options...like in FREE!

Zoho Writer is an online word processor that stores your files for you in the sky somewhere so that you can move from computer to computer with impunity.

OpenOffice is the complete suite that produces compatible files with Word and the other parts of the suite.

Not free, but somewhat manageable:

ThinkFree is $49.95 and is also available for online access.
