Christianne.. Thank You for the great savings tip !
I am fairly new to the ActiveRain scene, and really only started participating, blogging, and getting soaked in the Rain in January 2009.
I gotta tell you, it's my favorite place to learn new things...but this week was particularly special. This week was special because I read yet another very informative and helpful blog post from Elayna Fernandez about OpenOffice from entitled Free Tools to Boost Productivity!
Elayna's blog helped me save almost $500! You see, my Microsoft Office 2003 suite had gone on the fritz about 3 weeks ago, and so I decided to download the 2007 trial. It was coming up for expiration in about 10 days. I read Elayna's post and was skeptical but I downloaded the OpenOffice trial.
On Saturday I installed OpenOffice and gave it a whirl. OMIGOSH! I love it. I love it better than Office. and I doubly love it because it's free!
So I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who posts technology tips. And I have a very special thank you for Elayna - you rock!
