If there is a program suite that is absolutely essential (and free) that is OpenOffice. The version offered here is in French. Like any good pack office, OpenOffice Français has a number of very useful and professional programs: a full word processor (which has nothing to envy to MS Word), a powerful spreadsheet program to manage your own base data, another to make personalized multimedia presentations, etcetera. They are also compatible with MS Office. One of the most interesting aspect is that OpenOffice can export Français texts created with the processor directly to XML or PDF. It also includes the Java Runtime Environment. Therefore Français OpenOffice is essential for all those French-speaking users who do not want to depend on MS Office.
