Software Savings

CatPCSoftware doesn’t have to be expensive. In fact, in can be free. No strings attached; no spyware, shareware, or adware. Linux, for years has been an alternative offering to Windows. While trailing Windows for many years in user friendliness, Linux has gained ground against Windows in ease of use. Ubuntu Linux is a common choice, and just about runs itself.If changing operating systems is a bit much, and it will be for computer games; Windows can at least be used to run open source (free) programs. Open Office is an office suite that closely mirrors Microsoft office, but doesn’t cost anything. The GIMP is a GNU image manipulation program. Again, free.Free accounting software: GnuCash.  This can be used for small business accounting or personal finances.

Those three programs combined can save around $1000 when compared to retail “pay” products.

About Steve @ FPO
Hello FPO readers, I have been writing on financial topics for about 12 years now, but I have only recently reignited the fire of publishing online. I have to say, its good to be back. I am an electrical engineer by trade who enjoys all topics engineering and financial. I started Financial Place Online (FPO) to create a value added financial news and education website that would provide a refreshing daily financial read. Financial Place Online websites are built around the principles of consumer empowerment, leveling the playing field, zero spam tolerance, and none of those annoying sidebar or banner ads. For us, it's all about enjoying a good read.

    I love these free software ideas. I have been using many of these programs for years. I especially like getting around Microsoft Office with Open Office. It uses all the same file types and can even export in PDF form. For all my readers, I wanted to share this with you since we can all use to save a few extra dollars.

  2. Good stuff, I didn’t realize Open Office could do PDF’s. I wrote a post awhile back about 10 free things I found around the net if you want to take a look (Open office and Gimp were both on my list too).
