Just a day before Microsoft was to have retired Office 2004 for Mac by ending updates and fixes, including security patches, the company said it would instead extend the five-year-old suite’s support until Jan. 10, 2012.
The list of no-cost suites include:
The first two are available on several Linux desktop distributions as well as Microsoft Windows. They each include at least a word processor, spreadsheet, and presentation software.
