Mon Abasolo over at Pinoy Tech Blog espouses the use of Open Office, which is entirely logical for all ye computer users. Even if you’re an established MS Office user, it still pays to install Open Office on your PC — at the very least, it broadens your perspective on things and makes you appreciate FOSS.
If you like a Pinoy feel to Open Office, download UP Office, developed by a quartet from the University of the Philippines. The screenshot is courtesy of Noel Feria, one of UP Office’s developers. You can find better pics on his blog.
If you don’t want to install Open Office (why?) but still want to access open document formats, you can use the OpenOffice.org Viewer created by a UP DCS undergraduate group under the supervision of Prof. Rommel Feria. The file is quite small — barely 350 KB! The viewer will run on any platform with a Java Virtual Machine.
