No one can deny that Microsoft Office is the best office suite available in the world of desktop computing. The only alternative name that could overshadow it is Apple's iWork, but the Cupertino-based company has neglected this suite a bit, and despite continuing to update it, the functions it offers us are still very poor compared to all the customization options offered by Microsoft Office. If you have tired of Office, or you want to use applications legally and regularly updated, in Windows News we show you three free alternatives to Microsoft Office compatible with Windows 10.
As a general rule, ordinary users usually make use of a word processor for simple documents, making use of bullets, bold, colored letters and really little else.
