Your website empire setup for free? Part 2
Now that you have your computer’s basic operating system all figured out, the next great piece of software you’ll need to complete your desktop computer setup is also free. Open Office is a fantastic open source project backed by Sun Microsystems. It does around 90% plus of what Microsoft Office (MO) does, but for free! And I mean 90%++. Unless you need something very unique, Open Office is the perfect program for all of your word processing needs. And like MSO, it also has a spreadsheet for all of your data, a dictionary, Presentation which is the equivalent of a Power Point program, and the Evolution mail client that is as good as Outlook or better!
Again, this program is very easy to download, install and use on any computer. It is supported by all operating systems including Windows, Mac and Linux. It even comes in a slew of foreign languages from Chinese to German. Why anyone buys MSO anymore is truly beyond my understanding.
So with all of the above we have our computer set up with an operating system, maybe even our own server to host our sites on, plus a bunch of other miscellaneous tools to create and transfer our HTML sites with. Now how about a great free browser that not only browses the web safely and efficiently, but also helps us do our jobs well.
Say hello to Firefox. Firefox for me is the ultimate browser. And while it isn’t perfect, it sure is the most stable, secure and helpful for our needs out there today. That is why I recommend it as the first one to be installed on your computer. It comes as the default browser with Ubuntu Linux. If you are building your own sites, I also recommend you install a number of browsers including Windows ??, Opera and Chrome. That way you can see what others would see when viewing your new sites.
There are a lot of great add-ons for Firefox, and to try and list them all here would make this article too long. So just Google Firefox add-ons and you’ll find a bunch of people that can explain each one in detail far better than I ever could.
In closing, if you use all of the software I mentioned above, you should have a great, stable, secure and best of all free desktop to run your website and blog flipping business from. Maybe even your own free server. And remember, you don’t need the newest or most expensive hardware. Use what is already available to you until you begin making money. Or until you know you will stick with flipping. There is just no need to pay for anything in the beginning. Use your cash for buying great keyword laden domain names or link juice for your sites.
