Will the Economy Put the Squeeze on Office?

We all know times are tough, and IT budgets are more squeezed than Charmin. One way IT may save a few bucks is to give up Microsoft Office and go with a free (or less costly) alternative. Or so says Forrester Research. The research house says that 10 percent of those surveyed already have some OpenOffice in their shops (though, technically, it is now called Oracle OpenOffice.org).

Many alternative suites, such as the Web-based Google Apps, are used in conjunction with Office to give more options for mobile workers and collaboration.
