Freeware Alternatives to Microsoft Word

Freeware Alternatives to Microsoft Word
By Henrik V Blunck

There are indeed other sources for alternatives to Microsoft Word - even as freeware. The best thing about freeware is that you don't have to pay a fortune to get the program. But you should also be mindful that you don't have any support lines available as you would when buying the Microsoft Word program. On the other hand you have lots of online sources for some of these alternatives because many geeks (actually a compliment for IT-nerds) offer help online when you search using Google, Bing or Yahoo when you encounter a problem.

Let¨s take a look at these alternatives:
  • Google Docs
  • Zoho
  • OpenOffice
  • Lotus Symphony
