- [Vocieover] Hi and welcome to Getting Started with OpenOffice 2 Calc, the free spreadsheet application that's part of the OpenOffice.org Suite of applications. Now if you didn't already know this, OpenOffice 2 is the leading Open Source Office Software Suite for spreadsheets as well as word processing, presentations, graphics, databases and more. Further to that, the entire suite is available in a number of different languages and it'll work on almost any computer, PC or MAC.
It stores all your data, that is, everything that you create, in an international open standard format but it can also read and write files from other common office software packages like those found in the Microsoft Office Suite of applications for example. Best of all, it can be downloaded and used completely free of charge. That's right, free, for any purpose at all. Tell your buddies, make copies, download it to several machines at home, or in the office. It's all free! Well in this title we focus on the spreadsheet application known as Calc.
We'll cover all the basics to get you up and running, and if you're a premium subscriber, you have access to the exercise files, so you can follow along with me. And if you don't have the exercise files, don't worry about it, you'll definitely learn lots just by sitting back and watching or using your own spreadsheet. I'll be working in a Windows Vista environment on a PC for this title, but you can follow along from any environment. So, without further delay, let's get started with OpenOffice 2 Calc.
