Now, more free office software

Agencies

Free software got a major boost Monday when IBM
announced it would start offering free word processing
and other office software, in another challenge to
Microsoft’s core Office suite of products.

IBM said it would offer document, spreadsheet and
presentation software in a group of tools called Lotus
Symphony.

In another announcement, Google expanded its online
suite of office software to include a business
presentation tool similar to Microsoft’s popular
PowerPoint.

The new program will be included in Google’s free
online software bundle, called Docs. The company will
also sell a souped-up version to businesses,
universities
and government agencies.

As PowerPoint does, Google’s new software enables
users to create a series of slides with a mixture of
text and graphics on each.

Google’s software suite already includes word
processing, spreadsheet and calendar management programs.
