Save $400 on Your Next Office Suite


Export your documents directly to PDF!
If you've ever thought that $500 is too much to spend on an office suite, you're right. I have good news, with Sun Microsystem's StarOffice 7 you can save more than $400 and get an excellent office suite. If you think that saving all that money means you have to give up functionality...think again. StarOffice 6 was ranked as the most Microsoft-compatible office suite available, scoring a 97 out of 100. And Sun has made their full-featured office suite even better, faster and smarter. Not only have they improved reading and writing of Microsoft Office filetypes, but they've also added the ability to export to PDF. Until now, consumers have had to spend hundreds of dollars buying layout software, like Adobe Acrobat, to be able to create PDF files - which is the standard for Internet publishing. In addition, StarOffice lets you easily create Macromedia Flash files from your presentations. Now you can turn your slideshows into interactive web presentations compatible with almost any web browser.

For total compatibility, StarOffice 7 creates XML-based files. If you haven't heard of XML, believe me, you'll be hearing a lot about it soon. XML is the new standard in file formats, creating total cross-platform compatibility. With XML, having to worry about document compatibility between office suites is about to be a thing of the past. HTML has made web pages universally readable, and now your office documents can benefit from such a standardization as well.

Sun has also added features to make your office suite easier to use and more efficient. The Macro Recorder lets you record common operations that require multiple steps, then add custom buttons to your toolbar. In addition, StarOffice 7 lets you create and edit files for your PDA. For the visually impaired, StarOffice 7 includes a screen magnifier, screen reader and an onscreen keyboard.

You can get StarOffice 7 now, either by itself, or as part of the new and improved LindowsOffice (which includes StarOffice 7 and $100 worth of high-quality Bitstream fonts, customized for LindowsOS users), for just a fraction of the cost of the competition. Best of all, Click-N-Run members can get this robust office suite from Click-N-Run today for just $29.95. If you've been waiting to get LindowsOS, you can now buy the StarOffice 7 Super Choice Bundle, which includes LindowsOS 4.0, LindowsCD and StarOffice 7 (for LindowsOS, Linux and Microsoft Windows) for just $59.95.

Other office suites can be be expensive and have restrictive licensing agreements. With StarOffice 7, you can save more than $400 and get the most modern office suite available. To find out more, or to get the new StarOffice today, visit www.lindows.com/so7info.
