how would I go about getting Office for free?
I'd say bit torrent....but you being on a college connection, I wouldn't advise it, lol...I'll figure something out for ya.
ill just gie bill gate a blowjob
It's called LibreOffice.org. Freeware, very well made, originally developed by Sun (same company that did Java) before Oracle pissed all the dev's off.
There is also OpenOffice depending on your liking. Haven't tried LibreOffice, but I'd assume it probably is pretty good.
It's pretty much the same thing, just a branch of sorts. Ownership changing hands and whatnot, I'm not all up on the legal jabber, but LibreOffice is a derivative of OpenOffice.
I couldn't remember what the original team of OpenOffice called their new project and once I saw OpenOffice.org I got confused. LibreOffice developing team consists of the people who made the original OpenOffice. They decided to do their own project once Oracle took over since they didn't like what Oracle had planned with OpenOffice. That's just about everything.
That's pretty much what I said... Only you had to say it again after me
I said it before both of you. I win?
You win one million... pretzels.
You didn't say it in this thread, and I doubt whoever needed the software found a months old mention of it in a completely different thread doing them that much good. Gimme my damn pretzels
Whoops, I threw a glass bottle at your face. My bad.
