IBM to offer free word processing, office software
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - IBM on Monday said it would start offering free word processing and other office software, joining a growing group of companies with free applications challenging a core Microsoft Corp product.
IBM said it would offer document, spreadsheet and presentation software in a group of tools called Lotus Symphony.
Microsoft's Office suite of products already faces some competition from Google Inc's online tools, called Google Apps.
