As explained in the opening editorial in this issue, I'm giving away a copy of Microsoft Office 2007, Home Edition.
This is the Home and Student edition, which retails for $149.95.
It contains Excel (for spreadsheets, data calculations)...
...Word (for letters, documents, reports)...
...PowerPoint (graphic software for presentations and fun photo creations)...
... and One Note (a terrific program for collecting/storing/sharing bits of information). Note, if you're not familiar with OneNote (a program I just love), check out this Introduction article on OneNote.
To see if this software is up your alley and that your computer is ready for using it (you must have a minimum of Windows XP to run Office 2007), as well as see demos on the program, check out Microsoft's overview of this edition of Office: HERE.
If you're a paid member of TechTrax and would like a shot at winning this version of Office 2007, be sure to hit this issue's member's page and click the Office 2007 Drawing button to enter. The drawing will be held Wednesday, December 19th, 2007, Chicago time.
