When I see the price for software these days, it always seems to push me away from buying it. Luckily there are many great freeware applications out there for the Mac. For me, Microsoft Office is a necessity, because I use Word to type documents, PowerPoint for presentations, and Excel for graphs and to organize data. Surprisingly, Microsoft sells Office for $400, just for the Standard version. Since I didn’t need all of the features of the full version, I bought the Student and Teacher edition for only $150, which has everything most people need. If you don’t need Microsoft Office, but you want something similar to it, then check out NeoOffice. With NeoOffice, you can do all of the same features as you can with Microsoft Office, for free. Some of the coolest features with NeoOffice are the ability to save a document as a PDF, Finder and Mail integration, and beautiful Aqua integration.
