Free M$-Works....sorta

ZDNet ran a story today that Microsoft was going to go ad-funded MS-Works in the next version. For those that don't know MS-Works is a stripped down basic featured office suite. Think MS-Office without the office.

All fine and good because MS-worksbroke was too expensive anyways. Even at $49.99 retail it wasn't worth it. Why you ask? Enough software for college papers at only $49.99 as compared to the obscene price of MS-Office? So take some crappy suite and put advertisements on it. That's why we use FireFox is to get rid of ads.

As a PSA check out OpenOffice. Free, powerful, low overhead. While it is missing a few advanced features I haven't found anything that an average user would need that is missing.

Check it out. You won't be sorry.
