Homeschoolers for Open Office

Chris, Daryl and I have been discussing Open Office. It would be neat to start an informal group called ‘Homeschoolers for Open Office’. Its an office software suite for Windows and linux thats FREE. (No, there are no * with that free)

It is an open source suite and Open Source has a lot in common with homeschooling.

Open Office is downloadable at http://www.openoffice.org
