Whether you’re a student, a blogger, an employee or an owner of a small business or just need something for the occasional letter, LibreOffice is a great tool for you and it costs $0, the price of a download. Not only is it free, it’s Free Software. When you get it, there’s no end-user licence agreement. The authours give you the legal right to run, examine, modify and copy/distribute as much as you like. That’s priceless.
Or, you can opt for an alternative at much greater cost and less freedom: Microsoft Declares Office 2013 And Office 365 Pricing.
