Daily Deal: Use Microsoft Office Like A Boss…

from the good-deals-on-cool-stuff dept

Okay, if you used Microsoft Office like an actual boss, you might not be able to navigate many advanced features at all. But don’t wallow in ignorance, get a bunch of courses with today’s deal on a Microsoft Office Productivity Bundle — and pay whatever you want to pay for it. If you pay more than the average of what everyone else is paying, you get all 12 courses, covering Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Access, OneNote and Outlook. And for your generosity, 10% of the profits from this deal goes to Project HOPE to deliver essential medicines and supplies, health expertise and medical training to respond to disasters, prevent disease, promote wellness and save lives around the globe. Also, if you make it to the Leaderboard, you’ll get a chance to win a new iPhone 6s. So help us out, learn some stuff you should probably know, and help out Project HOPE, too.

Antiquated Microsoft UI

The trouble with Microsoft Office is the Ribbon. And the trouble with the Ribbon is that it was developed in the days before modern widescreen monitors became popular. These monitors have lots of room horizontally, not so much vertically. And guess what sort of space the Ribbon takes up? Scarce vertical space, rather than more ample horizontal space.

Widening a text document to use the available horizontal space doesn’t work so well, because then the lines get too long, hurting readability.

Compare LibreOffice, which puts its Sidebar at the side of the text, rather than above or below it. This leaves more of the height of the screen available for the text of your document.

Wouldn’t you prefer to use a more modern office suite, like LibreOffice?
