BuzzBadge to OpenOffice

In my previous post I talked about converting word document to PDF file using, today, I am going to talk about another way to create PDF file.

What if there is a replacement, not alternative, of Microsoft Office?
OpenOffice nearly takes me away from Microsoft Office! This open source (free) office suite sponsored by Sun Microsystem is actually more useful than MS Office, although it does not look as appealing when it comes to interface design.

The OpenOffice Suite has everything to combat MS Office, including a word processor, spreadsheet application, a database, presentation software and more. I have not tried all of them, but I like OpenOffice Writer.

OpenOffice Writer allows you to save your work in DOC, RTF and even PDF! That is why I like it so much. Whenever you want to have a PDF, just type your content into OpenOffice and save it as PDF. It works much like Google's Document.

Here's another tip:
Whenever you are looking for some softwares, just type in "Open Source [your function]" into Google and do a search. You will almost always come across a piece of open source software that does the job even better than some paid counterparts.
