Openoffice is a open source and free software pack that its functions and features is very similar to Microsoft Office Home. It has the software for typeing like Microsoft Word, has the software for doing powerpoints, has the software to do the calculation and graphing like Microsoft Excel, etc. Personally, I been using Openoffice to do all my class works for two years and I am very satisfied with it. Openoffice is great for all students to use no matter High School students or College Students since it is a free software; they do not have to pay for about $80 dollars to pay for the Microsoft Office pack and the only softwares they oftenly use are Microsoft Words and Excel (power point sometime). Moreover, since Openoffice is open source, it has many add-on extensions you can download to expand your using experience like Firefox does.

Official Description

OpenOffice.org is both an open-source product and a project. The product is a multiplatform office productivity suite. It includes desktop applications such as a word processor, a spreadsheet program, a presentation manager, and a drawing program, with a user interface and feature set similar to those of other office suites.

Free Software-John’s Background Switcher

This software can change your desktop wallpaper automatically by loading the pictures or photos in your computer and gather them to form a wallpaper. Also, you can set the time to tell the software when to change to another wallpaper. This is a must have software that can make your desktop to look cool.

Official Description

John’s Background Switcher (or JBS for short) periodically changes the background image on your computer (like every hour or every day) to something interesting. You can specify which pictures to choose from:

* Individual pictures on your computer.
* Folders containing pictures on your computer such as ‘My Pictures’.
* Flickr photo sharing – selecting pictures by person, tags, sets or just plain random. You never know what you’re going to get next!
* Phanfare web albums – keep up to date with your friends and family.
* smugmug photo galleries – yours, your friends, anybody’s!
* Picasa Web Albums – choose from specific albums or any search text.
* Facebook – your friends photos on your desktop!
* Yahoo! image search – the internet is your oyster!

JBS sits in your system tray (down by the clock) and changes your background at the time interval of your choosing. You tell it where to get pictures from and how to show them – maybe you just want to see one photo at a time or maybe you’d like to see a ‘Snapshot Scrapbook‘ of photos thrown across your desktop. It’s up to you and you never know what’s coming next!
