If you’re unaware that there was a free Operating System, then let me introduce you to Ubuntu. Ubuntu is a Unix like Operating System that functions like Microsoft Windows. You can run Word Processing, Database, Drawing and Spreadsheet programs that are free. Open Office contains all those things. Which you can then use to create the Address Labels or shipping labels that you need. Ubuntu is super easy to set up. What’s really neat, is that you don’t have to install it as the main operating system on your machine. What you can do is download yet another free program called Oracle VirtualBox. With VirtualBox, you install any operating system as a Virtual machine. So you can take Ubuntu for a test drive to see how you like it before installing on your hard drive as your primary operating system. You don’t need to spend all sorts of money to be productive and start printing address and shipping labels with expensive microsoft products.
