So a patron came in the other day and wanted to know if there was anything that he could get for free that was a good word processor. I told him about OpenOffice. http://www.openoffice.org/ which is a free…clone(??) of Microsoft’s Office Suite. Our Base Historian swears by it.
I also showed him Google’s web based word processor and spreadsheet that more and more people are starting to use. Just goto Google-More-Documents.
And finally don’t forget you have a word processor with your Windows operating system already. It’s called Wordpad and you get to it through Start-Programs-Accessories. No, it doesn’t have Spell Check but you can’t have everything.
