A friend of mine I running a non-for-profit organisation which was recently donated a couple of old PCs without any software licenses.
The computers are intended for a typical office use, sending emails, preparing documents, brochures, presentations etc.
All the users are familiar with Windows and MS Office but buying those is not an option due to the costs. (I am actually not sure if there is any special pricing for this type of organisations in Ireland)
So my question is: are there any free alternatives to running Windows and MS Office in this situation?
- some of the correspondence they receive is in a MS office format so the alternative software needs to be able to read it/ and convert back to this format
- there is no IT technical support person there so the solution would need to be easy enough to setup and maintain
Thank you in advance for any suggestions
