Libre Office

Microsoft is promoting Office 365. Often it comes loaded onto a new computer. Office 365 requires a repeating annual payment of $79.99. Libre Office is downloadable for free and is an excellent replacement for Microsoft Office. This full featured MS Office compatible suite includes all of the typical office components including word processing, spreadsheet, and slide presentations. It even has a database program. Although the class is taught using Windows 10, versions are available for Mac and Linux platforms. Users of these systems will also benefit.
