Open Office Course

Kong and I were sent for a course last Thursday. Seems this is the "course" season, one after another. Thank goodness it was held locally and not out of town in the rural areas. And it was only for a day and all about Open Office. Something new to me, it is a new software whereby it is free, not like microsoft, we need to pay for that.

Open Office is almost the same as m/soft, only the icons were a bit different here and there. Anyway, it was just a brief introduction during the one day course, how much can be taught and moreover, we need to do practical to get used to it. Don't ask me how much I know... I cannot remember much about what I had heard and done... :p

  1. Open Office is very similar to MS Office. I use it on my laptop. quite user friendly, I would say.;)

  2. No choice, one has to keep learning new skills to stay relevant.

    By the way, I switched to Open Office because it is free. Now no reason to buy expensive new version of Microsoft.

  16. I haven't used OpenOffice since I'm so used to MS Office and I'm currently using Office 2007. However, I do have some friends who use OpenOffice. Some of them like it and other don't. From the posts here looks like many are using OpenOffice with no issue as such.

    How are the spreadsheets in OpenOffice. I use complex formulas and macros in MS Excel - is the OpenOffice version comparable?
