Who could have predicted years ago that Microsoft Office with all of its famous applications like Word, PowerPoint, Access, Excel will have so many competitors today: from Google Docs & Spreadsheets and Zoho to ThinkFree Office.
If you need a free Word processor, spreadsheet and presentation software all you have to do is sign up with Zoho , ThinkFree Office and Google Docs & Spreadsheets. Zoho offers to-do planners, wikipage creators and chat rooms, if you are in need of more tools to create and share your work online.
That is why it is not surprising that Microsoft is considering the option to offer its Microsoft Works suite program as a free product to attract back some of its users from the competition.
I would certainly not pay for Microsoft Office 2007 when I can go to Zoho.
