April 02, 2002  Free Office Suites

I was a bit disappointed that 602Suite was not mentioned in the roundup of alternative office suites on the show today. It's free, and saves documents in Word doc format. It doesn't have every advanced feature, but it's pretty amazing for a free program. The only problem that I have had with it was a bug that has been fixed in the latest version.

Strangely enough, 602Suite was reviewed by Roger Chang on Call For Help today.

Another strategy for those who would like to save money while buying Microsoft Office is to buy the out of date version, and then the upgrade. The two together are often cheaper than buying the full new version.

Hi Christy!

I haven't been here in a while. Not sure why. I was disappointed they didn't mention 602Suite. I did it as a DOD a few months ago and plan to again next month or in June.

I gave your schrodinger's cat email to Leo, but he didn't have time to read it on the show.

Take care,
