Shouldn't you have a program like that on your computer already?
Did you know the odds of a Vault-Tec shelter failing are 1,763,497 to 1?

So imagine life in a Vault-Tec Vault. Not just a future.
A brighter future... underground.

That's why I steadfastly refuse to do group work.

I usually split off and do a group project on my own. And do better than any other group.

Openoffice sounds like your best bet. Don't forget to save it in a Microsoft format.

Use your email dude...it has spell check and all that fancy shit. That's what I always did in school, cause all I had was word pad which doesn't have spell check or any of that fancy shit.

Its basically a free version of Microsoft Office. It has a program thats essentialy the same for powerpoint, excel, word, all of that.

I use it all the time, basically because you have to pay for Microsoft Office and Open Office is free.

I'm sorry but it's not better. I've been using it for years, but since Office 07 came pre installed on my laptop, well there's no comparison.
It's worth it, unlike other expensive software (PS etc)

You're saying PS isn't worth it? There's not a program that's even close to PS in many fields, like pictureediting.

OpenOffice is the only way, because it's arguably better than Microsoft Office, free (MS Office costs shitloads) and it doesn't take long to download.
meh

Maybe in professional fields, but there's never been a time I found Gimp lacking for anything I've ever needed to do.
My friend bought PS and it was a huge mistake.

Yeah I guess it depends on what level you're using it on. I've tried both of them and I have to say gimp isn't even close to PS. Plus you can get it for £150 if you're a student in sweden ^.^

But I'm not.
I'm a student in Ireland who can't afford to feed themselves.

My friend bought a hot chocolate and a sandwich today to keep him going and it was €7.50.
That's like my day's food allowance, and this was the student café where you'd expect it to be cheap enough!

What specifically can't you do with GIMP that you can do with Photoshop? I'm curious, Kensai, because I use both and have yet to run into an instance where something I can do in Photoshop can't be done in GIMP.
