Xtort.net, an eclectic new free software blog, has assembled a complete office freeware package, called "Floppy Office", which enables the end use access to every tool, utility and program imaginable for home, business, and student users alike. All of the self-contained, standalone applications require no installation, whatsoever, and for this reason make the perfect companion software package for your USB stick. All one needs to do is to extract all the zip files containing each application to their USB, configure them to their liking, and they are all set.
The applications included in this bundle are: a spreadsheet program, a zip utility, an FTP client, a multiple document interface Rich Text editor, a notepad-style editor, secure file shredder, encryption program, full POP email client, web server for hosting files via http, a mini tree-style outliner, vector graphics editor, and a PDF creator. Since these applications are so small, you may be wondering if these are all console applications. The answer is no -- they all have a conventional, intuitive, graphic user interface.
Xtort asserts that "One need not necessarily depend on huge office suites, many of which are bloated with unnecessary features, to perform simple, everyday tasks such as basic spreadsheet calculations or writing notes." While no one would go as far as to suggest that this sort of package is full-featured by any means, or can actually replace your standard office software, one may find that this brilliant little package allows one maximal productivity out of the smallest office suite. And, since the price is free -- it also offers one the biggest value as well.
Given the fact that Floppy Office is so small in size, this is definitely a software bundle worth having on your USB, or keeping around for a rainy day. It is the perfect portable freeware office solution for anyone who is on the road a lot, or who finds themselves working on different PCs.
Floppy Office is not the only free software on xtort.net which can save one money and maintain productivity; there are also listings of thousands of free and open source software programs, spanning literally hundreds of pages, plus their own free software programs and utilities as well.
xtort.net offers daily updates of free software listings, as well as its own applications. Visit http://www.xtort.net.
