I Am Converting From Windows To Linux, Which Has The Equivalent To Most Office Programs. What About Outlook?

Postby sigfrid86 » Mon Oct 09, 2017 1:10 pm

You want:

Libre Office for word/spreadsheet/presentations

Thunderbird for email

Firefox or Chrome for internet

Pidgin for instant messageing - it does it all, Y!, msn, icq, etc.

Alas, I'm not familiar with any good calendar program cause I don't use them.

For email, check out this link: http://email.about.com/od/linuxemailclie...

For Office, there is LibreOffice and OpenOffice, totally free.
