This office software is really a can of worms. On one hand, it has
the very best interpretation of M$ Word files I've ever seen. On the
other, you have to register it to get rid of the constant warning, "You haven't
registered yet". Registration is free, but still... Also, there
are a couple of features that are only available in the "Plus" ($$$) version.
AbiWord is a free M$Word clone. It was designed to look a lot like
M$Word, so users of it should find the interface familiar. It can open
Word documents, and is a good choice for those who don't want to buy the retail
version of M$Word.
OpenOffice is a *free* office suite (word processor, spreadsheet, presentation
program, etc.). It seems to work pretty well, and it can handle file
from the Microsoft Office Suite of programs (even the new Office XP!).
This is a good choice for someone who doesn't want to spend ~$400 just to
open a Microsoft Word file. OpenOffice includes:
Presentation program (a la PowerPoint)
